Maine lobstermen protest Whole Foods after product ban

Lobstermen and women protested Whole Foods in Portland on Monday, after they decided to stop selling Maine lobster. “It’s unfair, it’s unjust and the collateral damage is when others follow the lead that is not found in science and is based on fear,” Rep. Jim Thorne (R-Carmel) said. This is all stemming from the federal government’s stance on Maine lobstermen being a root cause in the endangerment of the Atlantic right whale. “Maine lobster industry is the gold standard of sustainability, and we don’t harm whales,” Rep. Billy Bob Faulkingham (R-Winter Harbor) said. Photos, Video, >click to read< 10:07
