Maine Ocean Lobster

A relative newcomer to the Maine lobster scene, Maine Ocean Lobster was founded in April 2016 on the banks of the Piscataqua River. Affiliated with the Kittery Trading Post, this company stocks an outside lobster tank and sells both live lobsters and fresh lobster meat. Maine Ocean Lobster is built on the strong relationships it has with local lobstermen, providing workers with all the materials they need to catch the freshest possible seafood. This company has a diverse customer base, which includes wholesalers, processors, retail seafood markets, restaurants, and direct-to-customers. They never use automated equipment and they only sell the best product possible.

Harvesting Methods

Maine Ocean Lobster has excellent relationships with local lobstermen, who provide all of the lobsters caught from their traps daily.

As a Maine business, this company also takes care to source their products sustainably, implementing size limitations and catch quotas. Their live lobsters come whole, and their fresh lobster meat contains tail, knuckle, and claw meat.
