Product Description

Bring the Maine Coast Home With 1.25 lb. Live Lobster

The best way to reinvigorate a stale dinner routine is to include some fresh food items to the menu. Nothing is fresher than live Maine lobster shipped directly to your door and cooked right in your kitchen. Experience a true Maine tradition at home with 1.25 lb. live lobsters sourced sustainably from the Gulf of Maine. These lobsters are great for boiling, steaming, baking, or grilling. Or you can fully cook the lobster, extract the meat, then use it in any one of our chef-prepared lobster recipes.

Sustainably Harvested Lobster

Our live lobsters are wild-caught using the latest sustainable sourcing methods that help ensure the long-term population of this coastal favorite and support thousands of independently owned businesses in Maine. All our 1 lb. live lobsters are healthy, harvested fresh in the Gulf of Maine, and free of antibiotics. You can feel confident that you’re eating great-tasting lobster that’s sourced responsibly.

Unmatched Quality and Freshness

We always handle our 1.25 lb. lobsters humanely and responsibly. We purchase our lobsters directly from local wharfs along the coast 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 live lobsters directly from independently owned wharfs, some just a few miles from our headquarters here in Maine and others all along the North Atlantic coast. 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 1.25 lb. Live Lobster?

When ordering live lobster, one of the most frequent questions people ask is: “How much meat will I get from my live lobster?” Generally speaking, you should expect a 1 lb. hardshell lobster to yield about 3.2 oz. of lobster meat. We’ve found that 3.5 oz of lobster meat is the perfect serving size, so your 1.25 lb. live Maine lobster will be the perfect main entrée for your dinner.

We recommend serving some classic New England side dishes with your boiled, steamed, grilled, or baked lobster. When shopping, add to your cart an appetizer of crab cakes or clam cakes, and a side dish of corn on the cob to pair with your lobster meat. Be sure to cap the meal off with a mouthwatering Maine-iac Chocolate Whoopie Pie or a classic Maine Blueberry Pie. Get all of this delivered right to your front door fresh and ready to cook.

If you think a 1.25 lb. live lobster isn’t enough food, shop our huge selection to order different size live lobsters.

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.
