Maine Lobster at SENA 2019
In March, the seafood world will head to Boston for the industry’s most important North American trade show – Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America (SENA). Maine Lobster will be there too – spreading the story of the world’s best tasting lobster.
SENA’s more than a place to make transactions. It’s also where you can hear how seafood makes its way from the ocean to your plate, a place to see the marketing approaches being used to promote different species and brands. And we think Maine Lobster has the best story of all.
Representatives from every aspect of the Maine Lobster supply chain will be showcasing their wares at SENA. Come visit representatives from the industry when you’re in Boston for the show. Here are some questions you can ask the Maine Lobster companies in attendance:
- What makes Maine Lobster so special?
- What’s the difference between New Shell and Hard Shell lobster?
- What’s new in terms of value-added products?
- How is lobster prepared for travel? How far can you ship lobster?
- Why is sustainability so important to the Maine Lobster industry?
- How have the sustainable practices of lobster fishermen extended to other aspects of the industry?
