Lobster Glut

Osborne Burke

It's been a perfect storm in Cape Breton's lobster fishery this year.

First there was the protest over low prices, that kept fishermen tied up for a week.

Now, there's an oversupply of lobster on the market and that means some fishermen are tied up again.
Osborne Burke is the manager of Victoria Co-op Fisheries in Neil's Harbour. That's a co-op owned by fishermen in northern Cape Breton.
