■ Lobster season
Crates of lobster are offloaded at the Clark’s Harbour wharf from the Saratoga. While landings have been down for the first few weeks of the season, the price continues to be record setting for the opening month with the shore price in the $9 to $9.25 range before Christmas. Aside from delaying the start of the season for five days, the weather had been cooperative for the most part, with fishermen getting out the majority of days during the first three weeks of the season.
