MA Commercial Coastal Lobster Permit

We are excited to offer a Vineyard fisherman the opportunity to purchase our Massachusetts Commercial Coastal Lobster Permit. We are honored to receive this permit from Jeffery Maida, which goes back to his late uncle, Franklin Benson. The permit currently has 19 trap tags for LMA 2, making it an ideal starter permit. Fishing experience, fishing industry references, MVFPT meeting attendance, safety training, and a sound business plan, are the primary factors that will be used to determine a suitable applicant.

For questions, or to schedule a time for help with your application, please email Shelley or call us at

(508) 687-0344.

COMPLETED APPLICATIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2020.
