WOW that is cheap!

 

Even at $6.65 CDN, I have never seen lobsters at that rate.  Any idea of the source?

 

Lowest I have seen here is $8.50/lb (CDN)

 

Stock up, par cook them, freeze in some fat - enjoy!

Happy consumers but probably discouraged fishermen... Or Pandemic is lowering buying so they had to move them?

Maybe it would be better to leave them to grow for another year

It's almost never bad to feed someone.

Haresfur:

Maine has strict size restrictions for harvestable lobster - 3.25" to 5" carapace to eye socket. Anything smaller stays in the water. Anything larger becomes breeding stock.

not to rain on any parades, but supermarkets rather frequently put up "loss leaders" to stimulate business.

i.e. an item priced at/below cost to attract a crowd....

 

Never seen lobster as a loss leader a most Americans run from boiling a live critter.

I am off to the Redneck Riviera two weeks from tomorrow. Already planning my meals. There will be grilled grouper. There will be a shrimp boil. There will be Royal Reds, a variety of deep-water shrimp that, in taste and texture, resemble lobster. There will be char-grilled oysters at Acme, which, God love 'em, have opened an outpost in Gulf Shores. 

 

 I have been known at the beach to eat boiled shrimp for dinner, and the leftovers for breakfast. And I'll bring 20 pounds or so home.
