The primary agenda items for this round of lobster zone council meetings is to discuss Maine’s Whale Proposal and to vote on the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative (MLMC) Board nominations.
This past summer we asked the Lobster Zone Council members to provide nominees for the MLMC Board Harvester seats. We are asking the Council members to provide those names at the January 9th Zone C Meeting for discussion. The law states that each lobster zone council shall submit up to three harvester seat nominees from its zone for consideration. As a reminder, a harvester nominee does not need to be a harvester but should represent the interests of the lobster management zones. There are four appointed harvester representatives on the MLMC Board.
The hope is that the Lobster Zone Council members will be able to make Harvester seat recommendations at the January/February round of lobster zone council meetings.
Please see the draft agenda below and enclosed meeting notice for district representatives to distribute or post.
