Study looks at the effects of lobster traps on cod

When he and the other students do encounter cod in a trap they try to get the animal evaluated and back in the water as quickly as possible. After releasing the fish, Sweezey continued, “It was common to observe strong swimming behavior  in the cod in its attempt to return to deeper waters as soon as possible.” The project will run until November 1. “The students have been great. They have truly impressed the heck out of me,” Hutchins said.
