Gov. Janet Mills has issued an Executive Order that delays the requirement for Maine seafood dealers and processors to renew their license.

Dealers and processors who are applying for the first time still must apply for required licenses and pay applicable fees if they intend to begin operating on or after April 1.

Licenses included in the Executive Order are wholesale dealer, wholesale with lobster, wholesale supplemental, shellfish transportation, shellfish transportation supplemental, lobster transportation, lobster transportation supplemental, lobster meat permit, lobster processor.

The Executive Order can be found online here.
