Seafood Watch Red-Listed Maine Lobster Maine Lobster is Suing them for Defamation
Enviro-whackos in California, with way too much green street cred, decided to blame right whale deaths on Maine’s lobster industry (it’s actually offshore wind). Everyone was upset except those Biden’s who served it at their first State Dinner.
Seafood Watch went ahead and red-listed Maine Lobster, the lobster folks objected, and as a joke, we red-listed Seafood watch. But seriously, everyone in Maine lost their minds (it’s a multi-billion dollar industry Democrats need to tax), so even Democrats got bent about the designation.
While the political folks (mostly Democrats) wrestle for the title of we saved Maine’s Lobster Industry from a group they’d typically back 1000%, the Lobster Industry got an idea.
There’s no proof we’re responsible for whale harm or death. Red-listing has caused substantial image and financial damage. Let’s sue the twisted little panties of those Left-Coast Seafood watch weenies.
The lawsuit claims Seafood Watch, a program of the aquarium, urged food sellers and consumers to avoid eating lobster caught in the Gulf of Maine and George’s Bank in Maine. That caused stores including Whole Foods to drop the sale of Maine lobster, and eateries across the country like Cheesecake Factory followed suit.
“The Aquarium has falsely depicted the Maine lobster fishery as being directly responsible for right whale injuries and mortalities,” the lawsuit states.
The facts are that the designation ha,s defamed them, so if the case isn’t thrown out (Seafood Watch will try that first) then the discovery phase would determine who is right about the whales.
Based on my reading, it does not look good for Seafood Watch. Whales showing up dead on the Jersey Shore (not Snookie. She’s married and living the life) have nothing to do with Maine Lobster. But the Machine media is doing its best to make sure no one blames offshore wind, and the Lobsterman could care less because it’s still not them, and they think they can prove it.
The suit seeks to force the aquarium to remove “all defamatory statements concerning the Maine lobster industry and its fishing practices” from its websites and other published material. It also asks the aquarium to pay damages including, “the value of all business Plaintiffs have lost or will lose in the future” as a result of “defamatory statements.”
Maybe they win, perhaps they don’t, but it’s expensive for Seafood Watch if they do. It is money they may need to sue the Federal government, which is still doing its darndest to end “fisherman” and “lobsterman” as legal occupations in the United States.
