Product Description

Crack Into Our Best-Selling 1.5 lb. Live Lobster

Start your next culinary adventure with Maine Lobster Now’s best-selling 1.5 lb. live lobster shipped directly to your door. You’ll be able to experience the thrill and freshness of cooking your own live lobster at home when you order 1.5 lb. live lobsters for your next dinner. Make any event special by enjoying cooked lobster meat straight out of the shell, or remove the meat and use it in any number of our delicious 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 1.5 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 1.5 lb. Live Lobster?

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is: “How much meat will I get from my live lobster?” Generally speaking, you should expect to get 3.2 oz of meat from a 1 lb. hardshell lobster. We’ve found that 3.5 oz of lobster meat is the perfect serving size, so your 1.5 lb. live Maine lobster should be plenty to fill an empty stomach and leave enough lobster meat leftovers for another light meal.

We recommend serving some classic New England side dishes with your cooked lobster, like delicious corn on the cob or red potatoes, and using the leftover lobster meat in a decadent lobster roll. And don’t forget dessert. Order a mouthwatering Maine-iac Whoopie Pie or a traditional Maine Blueberry Pie. Any of these items will turn an ordinary meal into an extraordinary tasting experience.

If you think a 1.5 lb. live lobster isn’t enough food, or you’re worried it’s too much, order different live lobster sizes.

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.

    This weekend I received my shipment in Kansas City. It was delicious. Just what a New Englander transplanted in Kansas City needed. These lobsters were as good as I use to catch myself. Thank you. Much needed during these COVID times.

    Best lobster I’ve ever cooked

    My entire life, the closest ocean was the Atlantic, by way of the jersey shore. My idea of what the ocean should smell like was a bit off... it wasn’t until years later, while at a fine dining restaurant that I tasted the real “ocean”. I’ve cooked many live lobsters, but none were better than this one. A lot of seaweed was included and adding that to the pot had a clean ocean aroma that filled the room. It must have infused into the lobster too. A fantastic product. I’m hesitant to ever buy from a local grocery store again...

    The lobster arrived on time. It was outstanding. I grew up on the East coast and haven’t had a Maine lobster in quite awhile. I recommend this company wholeheartedly!!!!

  7. Verified Buyer


    I have never cooked lobster at home but had at restaurants. Was soooo much better. I’d forgo eating out and order these instead. Saves money and so much better.
