    Product Description

    Experience Maine Dining at Home With 1.75 lb. Live Lobster

    Need to reinvigorate your stale weekly dinner routine? Or how about preparing a romantic weekend dinner for two? Land the perfect dinner catch with live Maine lobsters shipped directly to your door. Bring the classic New England meal home by adding 1.75 lb. live lobsters to your cart. Go on a culinary adventure by baking, boiling, steaming, or even grilling your live lobsters. Follow our cooking directions or prepare your lobster meat to be used in any number of our lobster recipes prepared by a renowned chef.

    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 1.75 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 1.75 lb. Live Lobster?

    One of the most frequent questions people ask about ordering lobsters online is: “How much meat will I get from my live lobster?” You can expect a 1 lb. hardshell lobster to yield about 3.2 oz. of lobster meat, generally speaking. We’ve found that 3.5 oz of lobster meat is the perfect serving size, so your 1.75 lb. live Maine lobster will be the perfect main attraction for dinner.

    To pair with your fresh-cooked lobster, we recommend adding some classic New England side dishes to your order. Add to your cart an appetizer of crab cakes or clam cakes, and a side dish of Susan’s Seafood Stuffing for a full seafood immersion. For dessert, cap the meal with a mouthwatering Maine-iac Whoopie Pie or a classic Maine Blueberry Pie. Get all of this delivered right to your front door fresh and ready to cook.

    If a 1.75 lb. live lobster might be too much food, or simply won’t be enough, shop our huge live lobster selection to order a different size.

    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.
