Lobster Die Off Continues 
                          as Harvest Moratorium Ends 
Long Island Sound lobstermen are still grappling with the 13 year of a die-off that has decimated the industry. As CT passes laws banning certain chemicals, New York has lagged behind, driven perhaps by the strong lobby of lawn care companies and chemical suppliers. 
For example, New Haven alone was once home to 315 licensed lobstermen. Now, as a result of toxins, the poor water quality, temperature and harvesting conditions, there are less than 20 full time lobstermen working on Long Island Sound.
