Description
Excerpt: Lobster fishermen and dealers began reporting significant numbers of dead and dying lobsters in their lobster pot gear in the western half of Long Island Sound in mid-September of 1999. Affected lobsters appeared normal, but were limp or dead. The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP) Long Island Sound trawl survey recorded a drop off of lobster catch in September and a more noticeable decline in abundance and an increase in sick lobsters in October. While autumn die-offs have occurred in other years since the late 1980s, the event in 1999 was more severe and occurred over a much larger area of the Sound (more than half of the Sound) than in previous years. By November it was clear that the die-off was unprecedented in scope and catastrophic to the lobster fishery. To make matters worse, the incidence of shell disease, in which bacteria (Bacteria is plural, bacterium singular, so bacteria form would be correct) forms a black mass that rots through the carapace (shell), has increased in lobsters from eastern Long Island Sound over the past few years.
