Lobster Zone C council meeting
DEER ISLE/STONINGTON – There will be a meeting of the Zone C Lobster Zone Council on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. in the Deer Isle-Stonington High School Cafeteria. Please note the earlier meeting time.
The primary focus at this meeting will be on the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative.
This meeting 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.
Following the seven Lobster Zone Council Meetings, the Collaborative will present this same information to the Lobster Advisory Council and finally to the Marine Resources Committee in 2018.
Where the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative 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.
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.
Please see the draft agenda below.
