Harvest of Plenty: Lobster Glut on the Maine Coast

Warm water.  It's not all bad.  The lobster love it.  The Times reports there's a lobster glut on the coast of Maine, driving down prices.  We're paying $2.75 right off the boat at the dock at Hatchet Cove in Friendship where I moor our boat. Katherine Q. Seelye drew the plum assignment this year to drive up the lobster coast and taste.  Chris Becker is the Times photographer on the story.  His slide show tells the story.
