Up and down our coast, women from all backgrounds can be found in the lobster-fishing industry. In its inaugural calendar, Luke’s Lobster shares the stories of women from the lobstering community and benefits the Maine Lobstermen’s Community Alliance with all calendar sale proceeds supporting the non-profit.
The calendar, entitled Ladies Lobster Calendar, features 12 women who are involved in the lobster-fishing industry –there’s Captain Krista Tripp, owner of F/V Shearwater; Katherine Thompson, DMR’s lobster scientist responsible for its ventless trap program; and several lobster ladies of the future – Bea Amuso, age 17; of Isleford; Sophia and Scarlett Miller and their cousins Gwen and Willow Miller, all of Tenants Harbor. “The idea behind the calendar was to represent the entire industry – not just the women who are captains and stern ladies, but the women behind the scenes as well – scientists, lobster shack proprietors, bait dealers – they are all important players,” said Luke Holden, co-founder and CEO of Luke’s Lobster. “We are excited to launch the calendar and share the stories of these women with our guests across the country. My only regret is that there are only 12 months in the year – there are so many more stories we’d love to share.”
