Lobsters are dying in Bay of Fundy

Fishermen are furious a pesticide normally used for agriculture ended up in the Bay of Fundy and may have contributed to the death of hundreds of lobsters.

Dead lobsters first appeared last November in Grand Manan’s Seal Cove, and five days later a fisherman 50 kilometres away in Pocologan found more dead lobsters in his traps.

Soon after that discovery, another 816 kilograms of weak or dead lobster were discovered in Deer Island’s Fairhaven Harbour.
