How would labeling it Canadian affect prices?

Quality,amount and price of purchase.

The only ones who are uninformed are the ones who believe the line of horses**t you have been spewing. Clueless.

Can you clarify raiders?

You are in a postion to know the ins and outs of how processing and such works. I was under the same assumption as R2R711, that product processed here was marketed as "product of".


I'm referring to the bulls**t about companies getting half of the salaries for foreign workers from government. It's an idea that idiots have been going on about for years with zero evidence. Just clowns parroting clowns.

Who the hell cares about the lobster? It's the exact same product. If it is process in Canada then it IS a product of Canada.

I think you quoted me saying American lobster was pkg as such... and sir our lobster is better then American lobster people do care where it comes from....hell theres a diff in north side and south side lobster ....you think American lobster is the same?. #-o .go eat U.S spuds too ...

That is the case. Even the packaging materials can be foreign. At least, that's the lies CBC's Marketplace and the Government of Canada has publicly said.

to many loop hole that allows them to false advertise IMO

I would think a lot would care.
If enough were imported and label as Canadian it could affect the price here what the fishers are receiving for their product.

exactly...buying them cheap and not buying Canadian lobster or paying low prices for Canadian lobster or products....now that our dollar is low you should see the prices payed at the warf increase...

Answer the question.


Quality-the taste and texture of said product.
Amount-how many pounds that are imported and processed.
Price of purchase-if product could be bought cheaper might mean more profit after shipping and processing.

This is what the CFIA has to say about seafood labelling.

Q - How does Product of Canada apply to fish and seafood?

A - Wild fish and seafood products can be labelled Product of Canada when caught by vessels in Canadian waters (or adjacent waters as per Canadian regulatory fishing quotas) and the products from the fish and seafood are processed in a Canadian establishment using Canadian ingredients.

In the case of farmed fish and seafood, the farm must be located in Canada, and the processing must occur in a Canadian establishment with the use of Canadian ingredients.

I posted that link and quote on page two.

This is the part that leaves a door open to interpretation -
adjacent waters as per Canadian regulatory fishing quotas.

So in essence they can be caught in Maine and if packaged in Canada they can be called Canadian lobster. Still a lie to me.

I'm no lobster expert although i worked on lobsters for many years ,you can tell where they came from by the colors,the taste is better when fed salted herring,yummmmm. Makes the meat sweeter.
Soft shell lobster means they just molted and the shells aren't hardened yet. Harder shells are better for shipping. Protein count should be up there also to measure the health of the lobster.
You really can't say the same lobster unless you track them. Lobsters south of the border aren't as good as Canadian ones. Also had dealings with those.
See what i mean when i sat he has CD gets very upset when his world is rocked.
