Lobster Boats Frozen in New England HarborPosted: February 25, 2015
FRIENDSHIP, Maine – The bitter cold weather is taking a toll on New England’s lobster industry which is losing a significant amount of money this winter.
Frozen waters in Maine have left lobstermen stuck on the mainland again this week.
The boats are sitting frozen and stuck and ice is preventing many lobstermen from leaving the harbor.
Some say it’s been at least three weeks since they have been able to get out on the water and that the deep freeze is really starting to hurt their very livelihoods.
