Says who? Says a federal judge. I can't link to it because it's not yet in the sluggish traditional media.
On Friday afternoon, a federal judge ordered lobstermen to do more to protect whales. This is especially ironic right now, with lobstermen wanting to sell sustainable lobster, to capitalize on the "green" market. Strangely, Maine lobstermen haven't yet figured out that sustainable fishing means not catching whales.
Maybe Maine lobstermen will follow the lead of Massachusetts, start protecting whales, and get serious about sustainability.
