A lobsterman from Guilford is optimistic because he's catching a few big, healthy specimens. Dave Simpson, of the Connecticut DEP, says the rate of decline of the lobster population has slowed, which is an improvement.

This story, from the New Haven Register, offers a bit of optimism about the Long Island Sound lobster population, which suffered a major die-off starting in late 1998 (here's a summary of what happened and why). But the story cites only one lobsterman and one government fisheries biologist, so I don't draw and sweeping conclusions from it. And in fairness, the story doesn't draw any either.
