20 Lobster issues: Highly competitive industry Resource Markets Harvest Process/ship Overall abundance stable or declining slightly High exploitation rate in most areas a concern Unknowns pose threat to sustainability Dependent on one major market - U.S. Price sensitive to supply/state of economy Rising concern from animal rights activists Structured for short seasons: fleet/economics Good handling practices but highly peaked supply Strong competition means high shore price Generates low margins: capacity/competition Relies heavily on imports of U.S. lobster Need product development in processed sector Gardner Pinfold 20

21 Lobster options measures to enhance value Resource Markets Harvest Process/ship Improve scientific knowledge about the resource Reduce harvesting pressure/exploitation rate Introduce increased minimum legal size/eco-label? Diversify into new market areas: EU & Far East Develop consolidated marketing approach Market the environment & and optimal quality Ensure vessels have best holding methods Extend fishery over the season Quality-based pricing in port market Eliminate/limit financial support to industry Ensure adequate holding capacity to time the market Promote product/market development Gardner Pinfold 21

22 Lobster: short-term prospects Increasing supply puts downward pressure on price Weakening U.S. economy puts downward pressure on price - key factor for second half 2007 Canadian processing sector relies heavily on U.S. landings, keeps upward pressure on price in live market Expect stable to lower U.S. prices, with continued high exchange rate Need to continue optimizing industry structure/capacity to restore financial health to tackle marketing issues Gardner Pinfold 22

23 Challenges Getting the structure right: optimal harvesting and processing structure with a common aim of producing high quality products to diversified markets Improving the terms of trade: a more coordinated approach to limit the increasing market power of distributors Getting to the right market: product & market development to reduce exposure to commodity conditions Establishing the brand: healthy products/ clean environment/ sustainable harvesting practices Gardner Pinfold 23
