MARATHON, Fla. -- Prices for lobster and stone crab are lower this year by quite a bit, but the price plunge is drowning many people who earn their living on the water.
Local 10's Julie Summers traveled to Marathon in the Florida Keys and found many lobster and crabbing boats empty and bobbing at the docks instead of out in the water.
Experts told Local 10 News the lower prices this year are due to a combination of factors. Lobsters have reportedly been overpriced in recent years and now with lower demand, prices are falling. And as for stone crabs, production from crabbers on the west coast of Florida has been way up, which is hurting crabbers here in southeast Florida.
