Lobster boats head back on the water
Fishermen say their battle continues despite setting their traps
Most fishermen in south-west Nova Scotia went back to their lobster grounds Saturday. It appears a week-long strike to get a better price per pound has collapsed.
The fishermen vowed to keep their boats tied up until buyers offered $5.50 per pound. But a vote Friday night saw the fishermen take a different direction. They voted to continue the strike, and moments later voted to go back to sea.
The CBC's Rob Gordon attended the meeting and explains the confusing result.
