Sweden to Tackle US Lobster Issue Without EU Involvement
Officials in Sweden say they remain concerned about the discovery of American lobsters in their waters, and the country will address the issue on a regional and national level instead of through the European Union.
EU officials informed Sweden last week that the European Commission will not propose the lobster be listed as an invasive species.
A spokeswoman for the Swedish government says the country still believes there are scientific reasons to list the lobster and remains worried about its spread. She says the country will look into new, more local ways to address the issue.
