Sweden proposed banning American lobsters to protect European ones

American lobsters have been turning up in Swedish waters, so Sweden has proposed a ban on importing live American lobsters to protect European ones.

American lobsters have been showing up off the coast of Sweden in recent years, and they aren’t vacationing. lobsters brought over to Sweden for food sometimes get into the wild, and that can cause potential problems for the native species of lobster, so now Sweden has proposed a Europe-wide ban on imports of live lobsters from the U.S. to protect the local crustaceans.

According to The Local, more than 30 American lobsters have been discovered off the coast of Sweden in recent years. American lobsters are bigger and tougher than European lobsters, Sweden expressed worry that genetic problems could materialize if the two lobster varieties started breeding.

"American lobster can carry diseases and parasites that can spread to the European lobster and cause extremely high mortality," Environment Minister Asa Romson said in a statement.

To protect the European lobsters, Sweden has officially proposed that the American lobster be added to the E.U.’s list of invasive alien species. If the E.U. goes along with the proposal, that would mean that it would be illegal to import live American lobsters into the E.U.


EU Forum to Take Stance on Sweden's Call for Lobster Ban

An arm of the European Union is expected to weigh in on a request from Sweden to deem American lobsters an invasive species in much of Europe.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — An arm of the European Union is expected to weigh in on a request from Sweden to deem American lobsters an invasive species in much of Europe.

Sweden says the European Union should ban imports of live American lobsters into EU nations because 32 of the crustaceans were found in Sweden's waters earlier this year.

The European Union's Scientific Forum on Invasive Alien Species is expected to issue its opinion on Wednesday.

Swedish, American and Canadian scientists and government officials have sparred about whether Sweden's request is rooted in sound science.

A spokeswoman for the European Union says the forum's issuance of an opinion is one step in a long process of potentially listing a species as invasive. The process could take a year.

    The Internet is spelled with a capital letter inside a sentence, if that. And the hundredths are not with a period, but with a comma.

  3. Dan

    I apologize, but in my opinion you are wrong. I can defend my position. Write to me in PM.

  4. Jacques

    I beg your pardon that I intervene, I also want to express the opinion.
