AUGUSTA — The Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) is required by law to periodically contact individuals on the Limited Entry Zone Lobster License Waiting Lists, to determine if they wish to remain on the waiting list or if they no longer want a lobster license and wish to be removed from the waiting list.
The Department has mailed out a form to each person on each of the seven apprentice waiting lists to the most current address they have provided to the Department. Anyone who wishes to remain in his or her current position on the waiting list must return the completed form by April 9.
Anyone who does not respond within the timeframes provided will be removed from the waiting list, as required by law.
Fishermen on the list who never received a form or have misplaced it may download a printable form from maine.gov/dmr.
