Steneck Report Cited in Press Herald Article on Lobster Bycatch

A Portland Press Herald article on a proposal to allow fishermen to keep and sell lobsters they catch in trawling nets cited a 2011 report by University of Maine School of Marine Sciences Professor Bob Steneck.

Steneck’s report said if lobster bycatch were allowed it could create a “perverse incentive for draggers to target large offshore lobsters.”
