Comments from Prof. James Acheson of the UMaine anthropology faculty and School of Marine Sciences are included in a Wednesday Bangor Daily News story (http://www.bangordailynews.com/detail/111235.html) about the investigation into a shooting incident on Matinicus. Police say that the shooting relates to a dispute between two men over lobster fishing territory. Acheson has written two books about the lobster industry's history and social structures.
Acheson provided similar perspectives for an Associated Press story (http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gCjdWbNWSt-NxT2vx4PFiYlmOcdQD99J24400) on the same incident.
