    I’m trying to learn about these Canadian issues, but must rely on the Canadian press, because I’ve not found any independent writers that cover these issue’s.
    That said, whoever put the footage into the video showing a factory trawler in three hundred foot range sure is confused about the ground fish industry in Maine.
    A question.
    Is the outrageous abundance of lobster everywhere a by product of good stewardship, with detrimental affects to the fin fisheries like cod?
