UMaine Research Cited in Press Herald Article on V-notched Lobster Decline

The Portland Press Herald cited University of Maine research in an article about state officials saying Maine lobstermen’s efforts to mark egg-bearing female lobsters with a V-notch on their tail have been on the decline since 2008, which could put pressure on the future health of the industry. The article states that according to an annual UMaine survey of young lobsters in 11 locations in the Gulf of Maine, juvenile population settlements have fallen by more than half since 2007.
