Abstract

Belonging to and running one of Maine's 18 lobster-buying co-operatives can prove messy and difficult, but though they represent only 13 percent of coastal lobster-buying stations, the co-ops help ensure the survival of lobstering by allowing permanent access to prime waterfront. With a history of Maine co-ops; details on their organization and finances; and examples of how different co-ops are run, including the North End Lobster Co-op on Westport Island and the Spruce Head co-op.
