POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR FIVE YEAR BAN ON CATCHING LOBSTER

A vote is coming up in November that could ban the catching of lobster on the East Coast for five years. A public hearing is being held in Belmar, NJ on Thursday on the issue, with a vote scheduled in Boston on Nov. 7 . The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission say there are historic low numbers of lobster and warned of the dangers of continuing at current levels. There could also be a vote on simply reducing the amount that is allowed to be kept.
