Huge die-back threatens lobsters

Nov 6th, 2013 | By | Category: General

The moratorium on lobster harvests in the Long Island Sound that began Sept. 8 will end for Connecticut fishermen Nov 28.

“It’s been a disaster the last four or five years,” said Roger Frate, 68. “There’s nothing out there.” And what is there, he said, “literally stinks” — lobster meat that fish will not eat, even blackfish, which by their nature eat injured lobsters.
