Mainers fight Swedish lobster ban

WCSH - Maine politicians are calling for the European Union to deny a request from the Swedish government to have American lobster listed as invasive. Sweden wants the EU to bar imports of live American lobsters into the 28-nation bloc after 32 lobsters were found in the country's waters. Swedish officials say an invasion of American lobsters could harm native European lobsters.
