Abstract

"North by East" piece reporting that a new law regulating lobstering will soon take effect. The law requires that new lobster-license applicants to complete a two-year apprenticeship with an established lobsterman, as well as to attend classes in fisheries management and regulations. The law also sets an overall limit of 1,200 traps per licensee and allows the creation of lobster management zones along the coast overseen by locally elected councils that set even lower individual limits.
