Students Investigate Lobster Trap Bycatch

Thursday, November 14, 2013 by Katie

The Chebeague School students are investigating species that enter a lobster trap other than lobsters. Students are hauling a trap twice a week to examine what species of bycatch they find inside. A GoPro camera was also placed in the trap, so the students could observe the activity inside the trap!
