Will the lobster line change endanger fishermen?

Posted March 23, 2009, at 2:38 p.m.

A federal law requiring the lobster industry to use sinking line to reduce the number of

right whale entanglements will cost fishermen a lot of money. Is this the right priority?

Should the industry be valued over the fate of the whales? Or must the industry take the

hit for the future of the species?
