Support the Institute

Our Friends of the Lobster Institute group is growing, thanks to the dedication of time and financial support from many people who wish to see the Lobster Institute continue its mission of research, outreach, and education related to the lobster industry. Now, you too, have a chance to become a Friend of the lobster industry — and the Institute that serves it.

Click here to give online via credit card through our secure link to the University of Maine Alumni Association. Or, take a moment to print the Friends of the Lobster Institute enrollment form, fill out the information, and send it with your payment to the address indicated.  Thank you!

We invite not only people within the industry but all those who want to see lobster and the lobster industry thrive to join our Friends group. Lobstering is not only a way to make a living, it is a way of life — steeped with heritage and traditions. Working with the lobstermen and all those involved with the fishery, the Lobster Institute strives to preserve and protect this cultural icon.

As a Friend of the Lobster Institute, you will receive a unique membership certificate to signify that you are a dedicated Friend. You will also receive the Institute’s quarterly newsletter, the Lobster Bulletin which will keep you abreast with the ongoing projects being worked on by the Institute.
