New England senators seek to designate National Lobster Day

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – U.S. senators from New England want to grant the lobster another national day of celebration.

They’ve introduced a resolution to again designate Sept. 25 as National Lobster Day to honor the economic, historic, cultural and culinary contributions of lobsters.

The resolution is being led by Maine’s U.S. Sens. Angus King and Susan Collins, who say it honors not only the lobsters but also the people who harvest, ship and cook them.
