Stonington is the largest lobster port in Maine. With roughly 1100 residents and about 350 boats operating, 85% of the economy is based on lobster fishing.
A high population of lobster is driving down the price of off the boat lobster. A pound of lobster sold for an average of $4.63 9 years ago; it now sells for a little over $2.20 a pound. This of course makes it harder to clear a profit.
