Maine Edge Reports on Journal Article by Steneck, Wahle

The Maine Edge reported on the publication of a journal article written by University of Maine marine scientists Robert Steneck and Richard Wahle. “American lobster dynamics in a brave new ocean,” was published in a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Science titled “American Lobster in a Changing Ecosystem: U.S.-Canada Science Symposium.” The journal includes scientific presentations made at the symposium in November 2012. Steneck and Wahle’s article proposes that due to fewer predators, warming water, an influx of warm-water species and risks of disease, traditional conditions of the American lobster in the North Atlantic no longer exist.
