Wahle speaks to Maine Public about lobster regulations

Rick Wahle, director of the Lobster Institute and professor of marine sciences at the University of Maine, spoke to Maine Public about the continued challenges facing lobstermen even after the Maine lobster fishery secured a six-year pause in a federal spending bill late last year that will buy the industry more time to research and test new fishing techniques and other measures aimed at protecting North Atlantic right whales. “These are huge challenges ahead, and six years may not be enough,” Wahle said.
