Lobster’s $435 million plus ex-vessel value accounted for 77% of the total value of commercial fish landings in 2011. Historical landings have increased substantially in recent years. The “ex-vessel value” is the value paid to the boat for the unprocessed catch.

A town or city may have several ports in which lobsters are landed. “Value” in the charts is “ex-vessel value.”  The “(county)” designation in the table below refers to landing data for a particular county in addition to that reported for larger ports in that county.
