Halifax Airport Adds Space for Live NS Lobster Shipments

Stanfield International Airport has added 17-thousand square feet of cargo loading space to accommodate shipments of live Nova Scotia lobsters around the world. The 5-Million-dollar project to add space will help meet growing demands in Europe and Asia. The Airport Authority says they expect to ship more than 15-million dollars worth of live lobster in the month of December. Last year shipments from the Halifax airport totaled more than 149-million-dollars worth of lobster.
