Fishermen’s Heritage Lobster Co-op

Working Waterfront Maine · Midcoast Maine · Knox County

Located in Friendship, the Fishermen’s Heritage Lobster Co-op wharf services 40 lobster boats in a fishing harbor that is one of the busiest in the state. Over 60 families are supported in this community by the earnings from lobsters landed at the Co-op. The Land for Maine’s Future Board supported the protection of the Fishermen’s Heritage Lobster Co-op in 2010. Grant funds helped finance the construction of a new building containing refrigeration and freezer capacity and complete forklift accessibility, and other improvements to the wharf.
