The Seafood Processors of Newfoundland and Labrador Inc. (SPONL) is refusing to buy lobsters from harvesters — again.

This is an almost exact repeat of how the process of setting a minimum price for the crustaceans unfolded last year, says people involved in the industry.

SPONL, which represents 25 processing facilities in the province, issued a news release Wednesday morning stating it could not afford to agree to the price set by the Standing Fish Price Setting Panel so it is refusing to buy lobster.
