Help the Institute - Annual Sponsorship

Showcase Your Business as an Annual Sponsor of the Lobster Institute Web Site &/or Lobster Bulletin
Sponsorship of the Lobster Bulletin and/or Lobster Institute Web site will demonstrate your support of the quality research and educational work being done by the Lobster Institute. It will also provide an opportunity for your company name and logo to be highlighted in print in each issue of the Bulletin and on the Institute’s Web site – together with a link to your organizations site.

The Lobster Bulletin is the regular newsletter of the Lobster Institute. It contains articles of interest to those within the lobster industry and those who simply like and are interested in lobsters and lobstering as a way of life. The “Research Report” is a regular feature of the Lobster Bulletin that highlights current and future research being conducted by the Institute. It has particular appeal to industry-connected readers. The Lobster Bulletin will be published a minimum of four times annually. It has a hard copy circulation of over 2,000; is posted on our Web site accessed by thousands of others; and is reprinted regularly in the newsletters of such industry groups as the Maine Lobstermen’s Association, the Massachusetts Lobstermen’s Association, Downeast Lobstermen’s Association and others – reaching thousands more.

The Lobster Institute’s Web site can be found at www.umaine.edu/lobsterinstitute. Newly redesigned and modernized in 2012, it is a primary source for those searching the Internet for information on lobsters and the lobster industry. The Lobster Institute’s site is one of the most accessed sites from the University of Maine. It has been featured as the “site of the day” by www.newenglandwow.com and is even linked to the Smithsonian Web site. The Web site has undergone extensive renovation and modernization – and many sponsorship opportunities are now available

Annual sponsorship opportunities are listed below, along with a sponsorship request form. Please note that in order to maintain its role of providing the industry with scientific objectivity the Lobster Institute does not endorse any products. If your company signs on as a sponsor of the Lobster Institute this will not imply an endorsement of any of your company’s products or services. The Lobster Institute’s Executive Director, in consultation with its Board of Advisors, reserves the right to decline requests for sponsorship.

Thank you for your consideration.
