Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission sinks Connecticut lobster industry

“We have been beaten to death around the clock,” said Frate at his seafood store on Darien’s Post Road last week. Since the die-off that began in September 1999 when lobstermen in the western Sound started pulling dead and dying lobsters up in their traps, Frate says the state’s lobstermen have been subjected to a series of gauge increases — continually increasing the size of legal lobsters — and gate size increases on the traps which have allowed bigger and bigger lobsters to escape capture.
