Term Paper Explaining the Success of the Lobster Industry Introduction The Maine lobster has provided a decent income and standard of living for my home community for years and years Recently however the lobster industry has boomed and has been a very lucrative business for many local fishermen Although the price has fallen to a meager 225 a pound and the weather has made this fall less than average the lobster industry in the past decade has grown past any expected predictions Many fishermen biologists and others with a degree of input have at the least attempted to better understand this recent phenomena Some explanations of this mystery range from the depletion of cod a natural predator of the lobster better management of the industry ranging from larger escape vents to the implementation of the v-notch on spawning females to the controlled cage where the used bait herring or other fish maintains a well fed population In addition to these previous examples I will outline and evaluate some other suggestions or explanations The basis for this term paper reflects two main priorities for myself The first priority is that this ties directly into Maine geography in terms of a primary industry and human-environment interaction The second priority is that this industry has been a mainstay in my life to which I owe much gratitude In itself the lobster is a survivor The Gulf of Maine does not forgive in terms of its temperature tides and weather The chances of a female lobster bearing just several young from its underbelly are slim In an environmentally controlled arena at local high school one large two-pound female produced one juvenile lobster that lived to be 4 inches long before dying along with its thousands of brothers and sisters The probability of ensured survival before we even begin is to say at the least low Now I will outline my suggestions and will then include an explanation
