Claws for a Cause

Claws for a Cause: a program to preserve Maine's lobstering heritage.

Claws for a Cause: a program to preserve Maine’s lobstering heritage.

The MLCA is developing a partnership with the business community through its Claws for a Cause program to educate the public about the sustainable and non-harmful fishing practices of the Maine lobster industry. The MLCA has developed educational materials including a poster and table tent card presenting facts about the heritage and sustainable fishing practices of the Maine lobster fishery. Participating businesses post these materials and then donate funds to support the MLCA’s chartable programs. To learn more about Claws for a Cause and how to become a member, please contact Antonina “Andi” Pelletier,
