UMaine Professor Cited in Press Herald Story on Maine Lobstermen

The Portland Press Herald spoke to Rick Wahle, research associate professor in the University of Maine’s School of Marine Sciences, about Maine’s early lobster season. Wahle explained that in 2012, the season for soft-shell lobsters started four to five weeks early when there weren’t enough buyers, which brought the price down. Wahler warned lobstermen that if prices stay in decline they will have only two options: to stop fishing or fish harder.
