Service Description

Organize a community potluck to share information about the challenges that threaten the future of Maine’s lobstering industry and what is being done to preserve our lobstering heritage. All Hands-on Deck is a signal aboard a ship typically used in an emergency to indicate that all crew members are to head to the deck ready to help. It is not hyperbole to say that the Maine lobster industry is in a crisis and that it will require support from coastal communities and all of the businesses that both serve and rely upon Maine lobstermen. At the event, representatives from the Maine Lobstermen’s Association (MLA) join local fishing families to discuss onerous federal regulations that threaten the future of the critical lobster industry and the families and communities that rely on it. You don't have to be a fishing family to attend. Events are open to anyone who is interested in learning more and supporting the Maine families that depend on lobster. “Maine’s lobster fleet directly supports more than 12,000 jobs on the water,” says Kristan Porter, Maine Lobstermen’s Association president and Cutler fisherman.
