It doesn’t get more Maine than this!

Did you know that Lobsters were once considered the poor man's chicken. In Colonial times, it was fed to pigs and goats and only eaten by paupers. It's a myth that lobsters scream when you put them in hot water - they have no lungs and no vocal cords! Most Maine lobsters are caught between June and December. There are around 6,000 licensed lobstermen in Maine. Each Maine lobsterman catches nearly a million pounds of lobster annually.

Maine has over 75 newspapers that publish throughout its 16 counties and 3 major television networks that keep the million–plus Maine residents informed on what’s going on in our vast state on a daily & weekly basis. The oldest continuous run news-paper in Maine dates to 1824, just 4 years after Maine became the 23rd state in the nation. It’s still being published today as the Advertiser Democrat (Oxford, ME).
