Responsibly Harvested Lobster

At Maine Lobster Now, we only deliver North Atlantic live lobsters that are wild-caught using the latest responsible sourcing methods that help ensure the crustacean’s long-term population and support thousands of independently-owned businesses. You can feel confident you’re eating great-tasting lobster that’s sourced responsibly.

Unmatched Quality and Freshness

We always handle our live lobsters humanely and responsibly. We purchase our lobsters directly from wharfs along the North Atlantic shore and immediately transport them to our storage facility. We keep our lobsters in a saltwater tank that is maintained at a temperature that promotes their health and enables them to thrive until the day they arrive at your home.

Where Your Lobster Comes From

We source our North Atlantic live lobsters directly from independently owned wharfs along the North Atlantic coast. Maine state law limits the size of harvested lobsters to 3.5 lbs., so lobsters larger than that are harvested in federal waters and brought back to docks in either New Hampshire or Canada. Each day the docks trace their landings to the lobstermen and women who catch them, and we trace our lobsters to each dock where they landed.

Serving Size

What’s the Serving Size of 10-15 lb. Live Lobster?

One frequent question we often hear is: “How much meat will I get from my live lobster?” The general rule of thumb is that a 1 lb. hardshell lobster will yield about 3.2 oz. of meat when cooked. The recommended serving size for lobster is about 3.5 oz.

A 10-15 lb. live North Atlantic lobster will provide approximately 2-3 lbs. of edible lobster meat. That’s truly an impressive haul! We send 2 lbs. of lobster meat to serve 12 lobster rolls in our lobster roll kits. And you’re getting even more! If you don’t want to make lobster rolls, add more Maine favorites to your order with clam chowder for an appetizer, crab cakes, or corn on the cob. For dessert, look no further than a Maine-iac Chocolate Whoopie Pie, filled with sweet vanilla cream.

If a 10-15 lb. live lobster is simply more food than you need or maybe isn’t enough, shop other live lobster sizes here.

Nutritional Benefits

Are Lobsters the Next Superfood?

Lobsters offer a wide range of beneficial health qualities similar to other popular “superfoods.” Lobster (similar to other seafood we sell) is an excellent source of protein, offering 19 grams of protein per 3.5 oz. serving.

Lobster also contains a healthy dose of vitamins B3, B6, and B12, which help support metabolism and cognitive function. Lobster is an excellent source of the antioxidant selenium, which prevents cellular damage, and lobster is also high in zinc to boost immunity. And like salmon, lobster contains omega-3 fatty acids that help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Storage & Thawing

Simple Instructions for Storing Live Lobster

We’ll help keep your live lobster at the highest quality possible.

  • Handle live lobsters with care. Live lobsters are best cooked the day they arrive. We cannot guarantee overnight survival after delivery.
  • Refrigerate the entire box. If the box doesn’t fit, carefully remove lobster(s) and wrap them with the seaweed included in your shipment in damp paper. Do NOT store in an air-tight container.
  • Do NOT put lobsters on ice or in freshwater. Any of these will kill your lobster(s).

Warning: Closing claws and tails can cause bodily harm. If lobsters arrive without bands, please exercise extreme caution when handling.
