As a result of Maine's successful lobster conservation effort, the state has hit record harvest levels for the last three years.  So in July 2012 Maine Governor Paul LePage signed a proclamation declaring August "Maine Lobster Month".

The governor's proclamation reads:

WHEREAS, Maine and lobsters go together in the public mind across America and throughout the world; and

WHEREAS, Maine’s lobster industry is one of the State’s oldest industries and maintains its lead as a primary contributor to the Maine economy; and

WHEREAS, Maine’s lobster industry has long been a leader throughout the country in its efforts for long term conservation and commitment to the sustainability of Maine’s lobster fishery; and

WHEREAS, Maine lobster delights the palate with its freshness and flavor and promotes health with its high nutritional value; and

WHEREAS, Maine’s picturesque harbors capture a special quality as colorful lobster buoys bob along the coast, as sturdy lobster boats come and go, as the lobster harvesters work in the pristine, natural environment and haul their traps; and

WHEREAS, Maine’s lobster harvesters, as in early days, still brave the sea with the courage and determination that has made them models of independence and self reliance,

WHEREAS, Maine lobster harvesters often bring in more lobsters in August than any other month in the year,

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Paul R. LePage, Governor of the State of Maine, do hereby proclaim August 1st through August 31st as MAINE LOBSTER MONTH.
