Lobster waiting list

AUGUSTA — Fishermen on the waiting list for a commercial lobster license have until Sept. 2 to return a form to the Department of Marine Resources indicating they wish to remain in their current position on the waiting list.

As directed by a bill passed in the state legislature this spring, the Maine Department of Marine Resources has contacted all individuals who are currently on the lobster license waiting lists for each of the six limited-entry zones (A, B, D, E, F and G) 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 list.

If an individual does not respond within the timeframes provided by law, the commissioner is required to delete that person’s name from the list.
