I'm going to get a fishing boat and make my living digging up lobsters and crabs and stuff. The neat thing about that is a bunch of us fishermen could get together and agree to slack off, then return to our buyers and say, sorrowfully, that "the pickings are slim this year," and sell what little we caught for a ton of money. These people have got to be doing this already. The price fluctuations are so huge, restaurants have to put "daily" in the price column next to the clam chowder. Then one guy goes out and decides to spend the day catching actual seafood, and the price goes back down. It begs the question. How do butter prices stay reasonable? I would think butter would be the absolute hardest thing to catch in a net.
