FoxNews.com: Look at that,” said Mike Kalaman as he held up a juvenile lobster that appeared limp in his fingers. “That is not normal.”
Kalaman was on his lobster boat, “Dark Horse,” on Tuesday, hauling traps and setting bait in the middle of Long Island Sound. It’s something he’s been doing for more than 30 years.
But lately, the Connecticut lobsterman says his pots have been empty, or filled with sick lobsters like the juvenile he tossed back.
“Yeah, I know what the problem is,” he said. “To me there’s no doubt.”
Kalaman points his finger south toward New York State.
“It’s methoprene,” he said. Everyone who works in this industry knows it’s methoprene.”
