Conn. lobstermen coping with 1st seasonal closure

FILE - In this in Friday, Oct. 28, 2011 file photo, Mike Theiler pulls lobsters he harvested out of a basket on a dock in New London, Conn. Theiler is among about two dozen full-time lobstermen in Connecticut preparing for the first seasonal shutdown on Long Island Sound. The closure begins Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, through Nov. 28. It aims to reduce the total lobster harvest by 10 percent this year to give the sound’s depleted lobster population a chance to rebuild. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill, File)
