HALLOWELL, Maine (AP) - Robust catches of iconic Maine lobster will be among the topics discussed in a series of industry meetings.

Commissioner of the Maine Department of Marine Resources Patrick Keliher will present proposed changes to the state’s most valuable fishery in regional meetings in March, and one in April.

The next meeting will be at the Waldoboro Municipal Building on March 11, beginning at 5 p.m.

Preliminary reports by the state show the lobster catch brought in a record $364.5 million and topped 100 million pounds for a third consecutive year in 2013.

A schedule of the meetings throughout Maine is available on the state website.
