About MLDA
Maine Lobster Dealers' Association

Lobstering in Maine

The Maine Lobster Dealers Association was formed in 1985 in order to create a forum for Maine lobster dealers to come together and discuss important issues relating to the industry. In 2014, members restructured the organization to give the association a stronger voice and consistent representation through the creation of an executive director position and new leadership among the board of directors. They hired lobster industry veteran, Annie Tselikis, as their first staff person. In early 2018, the members emphasized the need for increased representation and are currently undergoing a strategic plan to expand their services.

The MLDA brings together the innovators and marketers of the Maine lobster industry and allows them to productively share their ideas and concerns.

Current initiatives include an Economic Impact Study on the lobster industry supply chain, USA trade policy and impact to the industry, workforce development, and several Maine state legislative initiatives. To learn more, please email annie@mainelobsterdealers.org.
