House Republican Leader Faulkingham blasts Lobster Fishery Decision

“The decision by the Marine Stewardship Council to decertify the Gulf of Maine lobster fishery is appalling. The Maine Lobster Industry is a planetary example of how a sustainable, self regulated, conservation-minded, wild caught fishery is supposed to operate. There has never been a North Atlantic Right Whale death linked to the Maine fishery. This act of environmental extremism is anti-science, and is attempting to solve a non-existent problem at the expense of the lives and livelihoods of thousands of hard working people and the families they support.”

Rep. Billy Bob Faulkingham (R-Winter Harbor)
