Protecting lobsters from pesticides. Maine official announces 2/6/14 a coastwide sediment testing

On February 6th, 2014, the Maine Legislature's Agriculture and Conservation committee  considered  a bill to limit use of two pesticides.  Due to information supplied by  Maine Bpard of  Pesticides Control head Henry Jennings, the committee opted to  refrain from new limits and instead accepted Jennings' plan to organize a coastwide sediment sampling project that will gather information on the present presence of pesticides in coastal coastal sediments.
