Our local started in 2013, after the lobster market crashed in 2012.
The Maine Lobstering Union was formed to give fishermen a unified voice at the state and federal level- a voice of just fishermen. So we could unite and fight for our rights. We also wanted to provide an opportunity for our fishermen to capitalize on the profits of owning their own Co-op. Maine fishermen control the product from the ocean floor to your door. Our members own Lobster 207
We have a GREAT team working for us at "Lobster 207" if you need to ship lobsters look no further! Fresh & Live Maine Lobster: Sustainably Caught & Shipped Directly from Lobstermen of Local 207.
You DO NOT have to sell your catch to Lobster 207 to be a member of Local 207.
