With the Gulf of Maine’s warming waters posing an increasingly existential threat to the state’s signature industry, lobster, The Boston Globe and Portland Press Herald joined forces to explore the challenges, stresses, and fears of those on the front lines of change. The Lobster Trap is a series that explores Mainers’ struggles to maintain their way of living in a rapidly changing world. This event will feature Penelope Overton (Press Herald reporter), and Globe reporters Jenna Russell (Globe reporter) who will discuss the story and give a behind-the scenes account of their 12-month investigation into this massive crisis.
