State of the Lobster Fishery: Science and Management

Over the last year, Commissioner Pat Keliher has held many meetings with the lobster industry on a range of issues as part of his commitment to bring information to the industry and have a dialogue about potential changes. The Commissioner will be holding 11 regional meetings starting this March. The kickoff meeting was held at the Maine Fishermen’s Forum on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at the Samoset Resort. This next round of meetings will review the 2013 Lobster Settlement Survey and other scientific monitoring, and set the stage for the development of a Fisheries Management Plan for the lobster fishery. Meeting times and locations of the regional meetings will be posted on the Dept. of Marine Resources’ website and sent to industry via email. Please check the DMR website in the event of any meeting cancellations.
