This is a discussion of the insignificant [POV] lobster industry of the Pacific - the true lobster is in New England. This article needs a major overhaul, which I guess I will do. Also the descriptin gives wire traps as rectangular while the image is semi-circular. --Dumarest 15:00, 9 May 2006 (UTC)
This article needs to be completely redone. I lobster in Maine (the most abundant lobster state) and pretty much none of these laws/rules apply.
Agree'd. I am from Maine as well. I just added a photograph of a Maine lobster boat. I will work on the content of the article later when I have more time. --KPWM_Spotter 03:50, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
The article is sorely lacking in a worldwide perspective. I added a section for lobster fishing outside of North American, and then added the expand template. Since I am not a lobster expert, I found a couple of links on the Internet, added those, but the rest will be up to others. SteveMc (talk) 20:50, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
