MLA has played a leading role in shaping the lobster fishery for more than 60 years.

Founded in 1954, the MLA works hard to represent our members on lobster issues. We endeavor to balance the economic realities of the industry with the conservation needs of the resource.

As a celebration of the MLA’s 50th Anniversary in 2004, a booklet highlighting many issues, challenges and personalities that have defined the MLA was printed and distributed to our supporters. Please read our booklet, “MLA: The First 50 Years” here, or call the office to request a copy.
