Maine Lobster Week


Maine Lobster Week honors the hard working lobstermen. The Maine Lobster fishery has long prided itself on being a sustainable industry, and has self-imposed rules to protect the resource dating back to the 1800s.

About the Event
Sunday, September 19 – Saturday, September 25

The tradition of lobstering has been passed down for generations and is a cornerstone of Maine’s coastal culture and economy. Lobstermen and suppliers know that in order to preserve the fishery and the lobstering way of life, they must protect the lobster stocks in the Gulf of Maine as well the coastal and marine environment.

You love Maine lobster, and you love that Maine lobster comes from one of the most sustainable fisheries globally. A seven-day excuse to eat more Maine lobster and support the industry offers even more to love!
