The Best Lobster Online
Two of the things we’re most passionate about are right in our name: Maine and lobster. Lobster means a lot to Mainers. It makes up a big part of our economy and is the backbone of communities all up and down the coast. That’s why we take lobstering so seriously. It’s not just a business - it’s a way of life for us.
Something folks know about Mainers is that we’re a friendly crowd. We say “Hi” to strangers on the street and have a deep sense of community. After all, it’s our neighbors that help us weather storms, tie off our boats, and bring in our catch. It’s this philosophy that drives all our business at Maine Lobster Now. We want to share the seafood we love with you, our neighbors, all across the country. Whether they live down along the warm Gulf shore, are landlocked in the Great Plains, or are on the West Coast longing for some East Coast comfort, our goal is to give anyone and everyone access to high-quality, affordable lobster and seafood.
Where New England Lobster Comes From
To buy the best lobster online, you should know where your lobster originates. Our lobster population has undergone a dramatic northern shift in recent decades. Lobsters were once prevalent around Long Island in New York, but the industry collapsed there in the late 1990s due to warming waters and climate change. That began a steady northern migration for the crustaceans that has benefitted Maine tremendously. While lobsters are still harvested from the shores of Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, Maine dominates the U.S. lobster industry today. The state of Maine regulates the size of lobster that can be caught here to ensure that lobster and the lobster industry remain stable and sustainable. You can learn more about climate change’s impact on lobster fishing in New York and southern New England and what the Maine lobster industry is doing to avoid a similar collapse.
One reason we can provide the highest-quality, best lobster online to our customers is because of our longstanding relationships with fishermen here and abroad. We buy straight from the fishermen in our own backyard as well as trusted fishermen in Canadian communities and evaluate each catch by hand to ensure every lobster is of exceptional condition. You'll find no antibiotics or hormones go into our lobsters, and we provide only wild, sustainably, or responsibly caught seafood. Our storage facility houses clean, cold water tanks to preserve our live lobsters to ensure you get freshness delivered to your door anywhere in the United States.
