What is the price of lobster in Maine this June? The Gulf of Maine is continuing to warm up as we near the middle of June and, while the peak of the Maine lobster season is still a few months off, the lobster catches are increasing daily. The boat price of Maine lobster is currently $4.00 per pound for hard shell lobster in Cutler where my family fish. In Maine supermarkets the cost of lobster is about $8.99 per pound (for smaller lobsters). You can buy lobster tail for $5.99 at Hannaford.
