Lobster fisherman Charlie Fitzpatrick, left, and his wife, Gail, both of Wickford, R.I., unload a catch of lobsters aboard their 36-foot vessel, the “Gail Diane,” in Wickford. Dozens of lobstermen, including the Fitzpatricks, traveled Thursday to Warwick, R.I., to speak out against a proposed ban on lobstering in waters south of Cape Cod. The American Lobster Management Board is considering a five-year moratorium on lobster fishing south of Cape Cod to North Carolina to deal with a lobster population crash.
