The Lobster Fishing Industry Is One of the Largest & Most Profitable Fishing Industries In The U.S., Canada & Abroad!


Whether if you have ever considered working on a lobster fishing boat or actually have, and are looking to profit from the industry but need a little trusted guidance, then you've found the right place.

Lobster Fishing is run by a group of Independent Commercial Lobstermen from The Northeast U.S. & Canada, that have banded together to reveal all of the industry secrets needed to make money either as a lobster fisherman or a lobster broker.

You may have heard that the Lobster Industry, particularly in the Northeastern Waters of the United States was difficult to tap into, and even told that you needed to have relatives who have been actively fishing in the region for you to even begin dropping lobster pots.

However, this only pertains to a tiny percentage of the New England Fishing Industry as a whole.  The reason being is because the Lobster Fishing Industry in isolated coastal fishing areas are tight-nit communities consisting of close friends & family, where lobster fishermen have openly declared their fishing grounds as their own property by default through generations of fishing. 

They have successfully done this through proposals that limit commercial lobster fishing if you have entered the business in less than 10 years.  You may have heard stories on T.V. or Internet news articles about this, but again, it only pertains to 1-3% of the total fishing grounds throughout the U.S. & Canada.  Their goal was just to secure the convenience to the proximity of the fishing area, but offers no more lobster than any other area does. The rest of the thousands of square fishing miles are open to unlimited lobster fishing.

There's plenty of lobster fishing ground and we want to point out the hot spots to you.

We are not going to tell you anything illegal or unethical, or to intrude anybody's old time fishing spot, but we will tell you how you can earn a living in the industry if you are willing to try.

Lobster fishing has proven itself for over 150 years to be a truly viable livelihood, and one that can yield seasoned lobstermen hefty earnings.

While it is true that there are some areas that you will be prevented from fishing in, the majority of the coastal waterways and inlets are open for business, and there are plenty of lobsters to go around, regardless of the country or region you reside in.

Compared to other fishing industries, time and time again, Lobster Fishing has proven to be the most profitable and less risky of all commercial fishing jobs, as the demand for lobster meat remains high.  It is the ideal way of making a living for a local fisherman in the Northeastern U.S., along with the coastal waters of Canada and Southern California.

Please keep in mind though, that even though that North America has one of the most active lobster fishing industries in the world, Commercial Lobster profits can be achieved in any coastal area in the world, no matter what continent you live on.

With the winches, boats & technology that exist today, Commercial Lobster Fishing has almost become a leisurely "extremely lucrative" activity.

There are thousands of square miles along the coastlines where you can drop pots and pull them a couple of days later with a hundreds of dollars worth of lobster, all depending on the size of them of course.

Lobster Fisherman have become accustomed to dropping lobster traps and raking in cash for years, and we want to show you how to do the same, through commercial lobster fishing in any coastal area in the world.

There is nothing like waking up in the morning to the calm coastal waters, preparing your boat, turning over the engines and proceeding through the, cool, calm morning misty air for a day of lobster fishing.

What person wouldn't want to become a lobster fisherman.  As seasoned and respected lobstermen, we'll show you how to establish a peaceful presence amongst other long-time fisherman in the region, and how to swiftly but quietly snap up new clients to purchase your lobster "through hairline price cutting" strategies accomplished by offering unique bonuses in the form of lobster & other means to ensure you retain the client for years to come.

Many Lobster Fisherman simply do not know how to effectively market themselves in their target vending area.  You see, we feel that not only is it vital that a lobster fisherman catch lobster, but also market themselves and their business in a way that separates them from the rest of the crowd.

In other words, the key to success in earning significant amounts in the industry boils down to marketing rather than who catches the most lobster or who has the bigger boat.

We focus on profit margins and exponentially multiplying that through client acquisitions, rather than trying to outfish competitors.  In other words, we emphasize on fishing smart, not hard.

Never before has such a more comprehensive Lobster Fishing Industry Guide been published, packed with all of the knowledge, resources, tools & information necessary to profit from the lobster industry.

If you truly want to realize your dream of becoming a lobster fisherman, then you need a practical guide that will take you through the phases and steps that are required for you to become a top income producer in your region.  With decades of experience & industry knowledge, rest assured you are in good hands.

We can honestly say that Lobster Fishing is big business, and we want you to take your share of the pie.  We have inside secrets to the business that can be applied to any country, in any market around the globe.

Facts About "Maine" & Atlantic American Lobsters:

The American lobster, Homarus americanus, is one species of lobster found on the Atlantic coast of North America. Within North America, it is also known as the northern lobster, Atlantic lobster or Maine lobster. It thrives in cold, shallow waters where there are many rocks and other places to hide from predators and is both solitary and nocturnal. It feeds on fish, small crustaceans, and mollusks.

The American lobster is found as far south as North Carolina, but is famously associated with the colder waters around the Canadian Maritimes, Newfoundland and Labrador, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.




Canada … 46,600 metric tons (19.5% of global lobster production)
United States … 42,900 mt (17.9%)
United Kingdom … 33,800 mt (14.2%)
Australia … 19,900 mt (8.3%)
Bahamas … 9,300 mt (3.9%)
Brazil … 7,900 mt (3.3%)
Ireland … 7,500 mt (3.1%)
Indonesia … 7,100 mt (3.0%)
Cuba … 6,800 mt (2.9%)
France … 5,600 mt (2.3%).

Leading Exporters

World lobster exports have increased in value by 57% to $2.2 billion in 2004 from US$1.4 billion in 1997. Canada, Australia and the U.S. sold about 63% of total lobster exports in 2004.

  1. Canada … US$703.2 million (32.0% of global lobster exports)
  2. Australia … $342.2 million (15.6%)
  3. United States … $332.8 million (15.1%)
  4. Bahamas … $97.3 million (4.4%)
  5. Brazil … $84.8 million (3.9%)
  6. Cuba … $65.3 million (3.0%)
  7. New Zealand … $62.8 million (2.9%).

Canadian lobsters are smaller than the legal size requirements that the U.S. government imposes on American lobster producers. Smaller lobsters translates into a Canadian trade advantage: international markets like Japan sell more lobster parts by the piece (including tails and pincers) than would be possible with larger, whole lobsters.

World's Largest Importer

Responsible for almost one half of global lobster imports, the U.S. remains the world’s largest importer of lobster goods. Listed below are other leading nations that import the shellfish product known for turning bright red when cooked.

  1. United States ... US$972.4 million (46.5% of global lobster exports)
  2. Japan ... $169.9 million (8.1%)
  3. France ... $163.7 million (7.8%)
  4. China ... $163.7 million (7.7%)
  5. Canada ... $151.3 million (7.2%)
  6. Spain ... $111.2 million (5.2%)
  7. Italy ... $92.6 million (4.4%).

Profit Potential

A Dream Job For Those Willing To Put In The Effort


This Business Requires A Full Effort On Your Part To Be Successful

The lobster fishing industry offers unlimited profit potential to lobstermen.  Like anything else in life, you'll only do as well as much as effort your willing to put in.  Whether you're looking to drop a few dozen pots a day by yourself, or a couple of hundred with some help, if done right, significant profits will be realized.

Within our guide, we show you to take a realistic approach to the industry by first dropping a few pots, and then selling them to potential clients including "restaurants & local markets", etc...  We can't stress enough how important it is to gradually enter this industry, as it does take practice & some patience due to the fact you'll need to measure lobsters to stay within current laws & regulations.  For example, in the United States, if a lobster is less than 3 inches from the eye sockets to the end of the carapace "body", it is too small to keep and must be thrown back, but may be different in another country, such as Canada, which has smaller minimum lobster size requirements.

By using our proven, turn-key revenue generating business plan in our eBook, you will not only reduce risk, but maximize profits, all the while being able to make free time for yourself to do what you want to do.

Depending on your target fishing area & market, North American lobster can sell for anywhere between $5 to $20 a pound.  Just imagine trapping up to 20 lobsters a pot, with each lobster weighing anywhere from 1 - 4 pounds.  However, many lobsters that are caught can weigh up to 20 lbs.  Imagine just catching one lobster at 10 pounds, at a conservative local market rate of $8/pound.  That's $80 just for pulling up a lobster trap in the U.S. & Canada.

But, in most cases, most of the lobsters you'll pull up with be within 1-4 pounds.

Several hundred dollars of lobsters could potentially be caught in a single day in a one man operation, regardless of which area you're fishing in.  We can honestly say that there is no better job than working as a Lobster Fishing.
