MONCTON, New Brunswick (AP) - A lawyer representing nine New Brunswick lobster processing plants says no demonstrations have been reported after an injunction was ordered against protesting fishermen.
Ronald LeBlanc says the plants hope ongoing negotiations will resolve a dispute over the import of low-priced Maine lobsters.
The plants reopened Friday after a judge granted a 10-day injunction Thursday to prevent fishermen from blocking them.
Tensions over lobster prices in the province came to a head last week, when fishermen held demonstrations and trucks were blocked from delivering Maine lobsters.
Processors have agreed to pay $2.50 to $3 a pound to Canadian fishermen when their season begins Monday, but lobstermen say they need at least $4 a pound.
Officials with the Maritime Fishermen's Union were meeting Friday with federal Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield.
