China tariffs hit the lobster industry

Why buy from Maine when you can buy tariff free from Canada?

These tariffs haven't hurt

These tariffs haven't hurt the industry a bit.
The Chinese still get Maine lobster.
They just buy them from Canada, who in turn buy them from Maine.

Uh no, they are operating out

Uh no, they are operating out of Canada (and thus moving jobs out of Maine, to Canada):

Much of the lobster sold in

Much of the lobster sold in Maine comes from Canada, and vise-versa.
Lobster prices have not dropped much at all, so, the industry seems OK.
BUT.....Orange Man Bad......
