Why buy lobsters from Maine? The water quality found in the Gulf of Maine is world class. The cold, clear water and steadfast salinity provide the perfect habitat for lobsters that produces the hardest shells and sweetest meat. Lobsters are found worldwide but it’s no secret that the highest quality lobster is only found in the North Atlantic, more specifically the Gulf of Maine. Let us be your direct online connection; we offer the freshest seafood, harvested daily and shipped overnight right to your doorstep!
