Always Sustainable

We take our pledge to protect the planet and support future generations very seriously. Chipman's Wharf is committed to providing locally sourced and sustainable food you can feel good about eating.

Trap-to-table

Lobster fishing is done by trap. Each trap is fitted with sized escape hatches and breakaway toggles. These features reduce by-catch and prevent larger animals from becoming tangled with gear.

V-Notch

Female lobsters are often caught with eggs under their tails. These 'berried' lobsters must be marked with a "V", and then tossed back -- a safeguard protecting the fishery for over a century.

Proper Sizing

In order to be legally sold, lobsters must be within a certain size range. This prevents over harvesting and ensures a healthy stock. The minimum size is 3 1/4 inches, and the maximum is 5 inches.

Apprenticeship

Every aspiring lobster fisherman must complete an apprenticeship program. Apprentices learn the tools of the trade, how to be safe, and the importance of shellfish harvesting regulations.

Seed Program

Every licensed lobsterman contributes to the lobster fund. This contribution comes from a portion of the licensing fee. The money funds biological research, and supports lobster hatcheries.
