YORK (AP) — Lobstermen are worried last summer’s low prices could return.

Lobstermen have been telling Maine Marine Resources Commissioner Patrick Keliher at recent meetings that something needs to be done should prices dive again. They’re not sure what the answer is, but they oppose limiting lobstering to three days a week.

Keliher said Maine lobstermen last year caught 123 million pounds of lobster, up 18 million from the year before, but worth $3.7 million less.
