Are lobster going extinct?

This question is posed by Maine blogger and cartoonist Patrick Moening...along with his take on the reaction of biologists who study lobsters. The cartoon notes a 23% decline in the last year, the decline is 40% over the last couple of years. Uh-oh.

BTW, all those floats in the water are connected to lobster traps. I wonder how it would look underwater, say to a right whale swimming by?

Cartoon source: Check out more of Patrick's cartoons, they're funny! Here's one more good one:

My God! Not only are they carrying bags of poop ... they're identical twins who own identical twin dogs!
