The price of lobster paid at the wharf is slightly lower for the fourth week of the 2022 fishery.
Magdalen Islands lobster fishers received $7.86/lb, the same price as at this time last year.
This is the first time since the beginning of the season that the dockside price has fallen below $8/lb.
As for landings, the Office des pêcheurs de homard des Îles estimates that just over 1,510,000 pounds were caught.
This represents a modest decrease of 3.5% compared to the catch volume for the same period in 2021.
