WGME talks with Leeman about monitoring lobster health after capture

WGME (Channel 13 in Portland) talked with Cassandra Leeman, a marine biology and marine policy master’s student at the University of Maine, about efforts to monitor lobster health and conditions in the shipping crates as the crustaceans travel from trap to market. Sensors that measure temperature, oxygen levels and the lobster’s heart rate are intended to reduce mortality during shipping.
