The Maine Lobster Dealers’ Association was formed in 1985 to create a forum for Maine lobster wholesalers and processors to discuss important issues in the industry. In 2014, members restructured the organization to provide a stronger voice to the lobster supply chain businesses and offer consistent representation. They hired industry veteran, Annie Tselikis, as their first executive director.

Today, the MLDA convenes the innovators and marketers of the Maine lobster industry. The organization provides the space for members to share their ideas and proactively find solutions to the regulatory and business challenges they may face.
