Attend the Keeper Fund Dinner Series!

The Maine Lobster Leadership Institute recruites 15 to 20 lobstermen and women under the age of 40 to take part in a training program that allows for in depth exploration of various topics and hands on learning. Participants study lobster industry fundamentals – such as science, management and marketing – and take part in on-site learning experiences to reinforce those fundamentals. This program helps participants feel confident as future leaders of the lobster fishery.
