PORTLAND, Maine - As a trade deal between the European Union and Canada nears completion, politicians in Maine want the federal government to find a way to prevent the U.S. from landing in a major trade disadvantage over a valuable, and tasty, resource " lobsters.

The Canada-European Union deal would get rid of tariffs on Canadian lobster exports to the 28-nation bloc. That would give Canada a huge advantage over the United States in sending some coveted seafood products overseas.

EU nations imported more than CAD 150 million in lobster from America in 2016, and took more than CAD 190 million (USD 143 million) from Canada. The combination of a strong USD and tariffs would make it hard to compete with Canada, American lobster exporters said.
