Wahle, Bayer Talk to Media About Lobster Shell Disease

Richard Wahle, research professor in the University of Maine School of Marine Sciences, spoke with the Boothbay Register about the increase of a shell disease that is infecting Maine lobsters. Wahle said the bacterial infection doesn’t make the lobster inedible, but a diseased lobster is harder to sell. He said the rising ocean temperature in the Gulf of Maine has been linked to the disease. Bob Bayer, executive director of the Lobster Institute at UMaine, spoke with the Bangor Daily News about the disease.
