Zone council to focus on lobster marketing

BAR HARBOR — A Department of Marine Resources Lobster Zone B council meeting is set for the Mount Desert Island High School library on Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 6 p.m.

The primary focus will be on the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative.

These meetings will be an opportunity to hear from a representative of the collaborative about the strategy used to market Maine lobster and about the results of an independent third-party audit of the MLMC’s programs since its inception.

“Where the MLMC sunsets in 2018, we urge people to attend a meeting to hear the presentation, to ask questions and to provide constructive feedback that will help inform the Lobster Advisory Council’s discussions,” said Sarah Cotnoir of the DMR.

Based on the outcome of the audit and with consideration of any recommendations by the Lobster Advisory Council, the Marine Resources Committee may report out a bill to the Legislature to reauthorize the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative.
