How can the lobster industry maximize its catch?

Posted Sept. 20, 2010, at 3:28 p.m.

There are indications that the 2010 haul is again strong, and prices have rebounded from

the lows of 2009. If the fishery continues to be well-managed, how can fishermen bring in

more profit? Can the Maine lobster brand be strengthened so consumers know to ask for

it by name? Can the product make inroads into new international markets? What about

value-added markets – can Maine begin to manufacture lobster-based foods for the frozen

grocery niche?
