Lobster Die-Off in the Sound?

Via Facebook, Soundkeeper Terry Backer reports that he's hearing of a lobster die-off in Long Island Sound. Here's what he wrote:

Local Lobster fishers report finding dead and dying lobsters in the wake of the incessant rains and hurricane Irene..There seems to be a pattern of stress on the lobsters after large rainfalls 3 inches or so... The lobsters are still ok to eat..We are investigating this ongoing issue.

I hadn't heard that (not that I necessarily would hear of it). I wonder what they hope to accomplish. Probably talking about federal aid.
