Frequently asked questions
Can I dive for lobster?
No. It is illegal to harvest lobster by diving in the State of New Hampshire.
I haven’t received my lobster trap tags yet. Do you have a number for Stoffel Seals?
Issues with lobster trap tags must be resolved through the Marine Fisheries Division (603-868-1095), not Stoffel Seals.
What do I need to allow me to land lobsters that were harvested outside of state waters in NH?
You will need a Wholesale Marine Species License if not licensed to harvest lobsters in state waters. To request this license, contact the Marine Division at (603) 868-1095 or Licensing/Front Desk at (603) 271-3422 between the hours of 8am and 4pm.
There have been a lot of lobster traps and gear washed up on the beach. Do you do anything about it?
NH Fish and Game organizes a spring cleanup each year with the NH Commercial Fishermen’s Association to clean up all the lobster gear debris caused by storms, etc.
