Longtime Stonington, Maine, lobsterman Frank Gotwals may be the perfect pick to chair the board of the new Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative, according to an article on PressHerald.com.

This year, lobster will play a bigger part in the time Gotwals spends off the water, as he steers the board of the collaborative, the statewide group charged with promoting the state’s $365 million catch around the globe. His charge is particularly important as Maine’s lobster industry works to regain its balance on the heels of the recession and record landings in 2012 that sank lobster prices.
