Lobster Season Opens June 15th

Lobster season is set to open on Monday, June fifteenth and already fishermen are saying that the lobster will not fetch a good price on the market.  We reached out two of the fishermen cooperatives in Belize City, but we only heard back from one. That cooperative indicates that it is too early to tell what the price will be for this season.  They are reverting to the practice of making the first payment now and a second payment at a later date.  Starting the season off, the first payment price will be twelve dollars a pound.  They say it is left to be seen what, if any, impact COVID-19 will have on the export market.  They’ll have a better idea of this around August.  A post circulating on Facebook shows that Rainforest Seafoods will be purchasing whole lobsters at five dollars and fifty cents a pound; while lobster tails will be for twelve dollars for the opening of the season.
