McConnon, Criner Comment in Press Herald Canada Trade Report

University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialist and professor of economics Jim McConnon and George Criner, director of the UMaine School of Economics, were interviewed for a sidebar to a Portland Press Herald business article about how Maine lobsters are bought, sold and priced, a subject that has arisen as a result of the controversy in Canada over imported, inexpensive Maine lobsters, which are driving down Canadian prices. McConnon noted that Canada is Maine’s most important trading partner, while Criner said the strengthening U.S. dollar is increasing the cost in Canada of many imported products.
