Are pesticides used in aquaculture pens threatening the long-term health of lobster?

Can salmon be raised in pens off Maine’s coast without harming the $228 million lobster

industry? Should the U.S. and Canada adopt similar restrictions on such pesticides? If the

lobster fishery is threatened by aquaculture practices, should regulators defer to the larger,

established fishery?
