BOSTON (CBS) – Kyle Murdock comes from a lobster fishing family. He’s opening the Sea Hag seafood processing plant in Tenants Harbor.

Kyle says he takes soft shell lobsters that are not suitable for the live market, and processes them into frozen products for the food service industry.

Maine has three other lobster processing plants, but cannot keep up with the demand lately. A lot of Maine lobsters have been shipped to Canada to be processed. That created tension with Canadian lobster fishermen, but that’s been settled. Murdock says he holds no grudges against the Canadian processing plants. He thinks there’s a lot of opportunity for the lobster industry on both sides of the border to work together.

Murdock says plans for the plant have been in place for a long time and it will start out operating at half capacity, processing 20,000 pounds of lobster a day.
