Not to be Politically Correct !! I could wrong but my under standing the number of Right Whales that have been killed by lobster gear in the last 5 years in the Gulf of Maine is 0.

Wow here we go again. I do so wish that someone would do the research of how many Right Whales have been killed by lobster gear in the last 5 years in the Gulf of Maine.Must be someone up there who is smart enough to locate the stats. rather than just going along with the enviros to look Politically Correct !!
Zero in 5 years, one possible entanglement in 20 I believe,
