Lobster trade hits snags

Chinese customs officials say there is no ban on lobster imports from Australia via official route.

    It should be one of the busiest times of the year for lobster fishermen working off Tasmania's coast.

    But instead, they are spending more time in port after China blocked an unofficial market route for perishable goods.

    Lobster exporters now have to pay steep tariffs if they want to sell to China.
