Opinion: Protect offshore lobsters, guard Maine industry – Democratic Rep. Mick Devin, Maine Legislature

BDNThe Maine Legislature turned back a measure that could have placed in jeopardy this $1 billion industry that supports 7,000 jobs. I’m proud to be able to say that Democrats and Republicans in both the House of Representatives and Senate considered the science and the sustainable practices of lobstermen and rejected a bill that however well-intentioned could have wreaked havoc on Maine’s vital lobster fishery.
