Local lobstermen worried major die-off under way

Some local lobstermen say a lobster die-off is under way in western Long Island Sound, the likes of which they haven’t seen since their industry was decimated beginning in the fall of 1999 when 95 percent of the lobsters in the Sound died.

“It is a repeat of 1999,” said Darien lobsterman Roger Frate, president of the West End Long Island Sound Lobster Association. “We had these things coming back. We had a nice summer, then the rain started.”
