Not a fan of lobster. Crabmeat on the other hand I could eat till I exploded. $26/lb for regular crabmeat right now on The Eastern shore. I don't like fish enough to pay for it and unless I know the fishermen that caught it I'm steering clear of it.You’re right. Lobster and backfin for me at that price.
The last time I looked at what they had for sale it was imported, it might be different now. I rarely shop at Wegmans. At the height of the season I buy it from Lindy's, vacuum seal it and freeze it. When they're picking a lot, the price drops to $21/lb.Wegman's has been $25.00 lb. for the past 2 years
The retail price is fairly consistent most places, the wholesale market is all over the place. No shortage of fish or demand, another good Christmas on the horizon.I wonder what the price of Rockfish are up in the Northern states like NY and Boston. They seem to be picking up the migratory fish up there all summer.
