SAULNIERVILLE, N.S. -- A Nova Scotia lobster fisherman says he is troubled by the recent thefts of roughly 2,700 kilograms of live lobster in the province.

Hubert Saulnier, a former president of the Maritime Fishermen's Union Local 9, says the valuable crustaceans were someone's livelihood and a lot of work and money went into catching them.

The RCMP say 48 crates of live lobster, more than 2,100 kilograms, were stolen from an outdoor pound at a business on Cape Sable Island early Wednesday.

The theft followed a similar incident last month, when 14 crates of lobster were stolen from a secure compound on Morris Island near Yarmouth.

Saulnier says at roughly six dollars per pound, the latest theft would have amounted to roughly $27,000 in lobster.

He says he's concerned about the incidents and believes the thieves had an elaborate plan, as live lobsters have a limited shelf life.
