Graffam Bros Seafood Market

Formed from an ice-cutting business, Graffam Bros. Seafood Market has a reputation for providing high-quality, ocean-fresh seafood. The business exists as both a market and a restaurant, though visitors flock to both to experience traditional coastal Maine fare. They sell live lobster, fresh seafood, prepared meals, and sea vegetables at their store, but the company also ships live lobsters across the country. Graffam Bros. Seafood Market is a family business committed to friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable service – as well as some of the freshest seafood on the east coast.

Because they use a food-specific delivery service, customers can order live lobster during Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and other major holidays. Customers choose lobsters between 1.25lb and 3lbs, and shipping costs vary by location.

Harvesting Methods

Graffam Bros. Seafood Market only sells responsibly resourced lobster. Their Maine lobsters are 100% hand-harvested from small day boats one trap at a time to protect both their quality and the marine habitat in which they live. This market’s travel-only harvesting methods also incorporate minimum and maximum size limits, trap limits, tail notching on egg-bearing females, a lobster seed fund, and an apprentice program.
