SUFB 924: Lobstermen Fight Against New Regulations Designed To Restrict Lobster Fishing And Save Northern Right Whales
New restrictions by the Department of Marine Resources in Maine that are designed to help Northern Right Whales are causing the Maine Lobstermen's Association to worry about the negative effect it will have on their industry.
I provide you with a description of how the whales are affected by the lobster fishery and how the restrictions could improve the whale population.

Imagine you are a local rock lobster fisher that relies on the sale of your catches to support your family. There are only 2000 fishers within the community, so it's relatively small. Now, the state government decides it is going to take 17% of the fishery to provide funds for the local community.
How would you feel about that? This situation is happening in Western Australia right now.
