After a great 2021 season, lobster fishermen and foodies alike are looking forward to a bountiful 2022. The Maine Lobster industry is gearing up for its peak season from June to November as consumers indulge in one of the most beloved seafoods at home and in restaurants around the country.
The Maine Lobster industry is one of the oldest operating fisheries and has long been on the forefront of sustainability – harvesting lobsters by hand, one trap at a time from small day boats.
