New England waters are chock full of lobster! We maintain several traps you can help us haul, process, re-bait, and set.  Learn how to identify a keeper lobster and how to bind their claws for harvest!  Lobsters that meet regulatory requirements are yours to keep if you choose. 

Lobstering can offer a change of pace from fishing for those looking for a diverse ocean experience and is a fun and educational activity for all ages!
