Our Product

Homarus Americanus (American Lobster)

The lobsters that we deal in are all caught fresh here in Nova Scotia, home of the Lobster Capital of the world. We have a process of grading that we do to determine the weight classes of each premium lobster. As we grade through our product we are assured that the lobsters are lively and hard shelled so that they will be filled with delicious meat.


Grading Process

Division Into Weight Classes

Weights are by the pound (lbs)

During the grading process, our professionals individually place the live lobsters on a scale. If it passes inspection it is then placed into a crate with it's corresponding weight class.  The crates are then submerged into our live holding tanks which are filled and continuously pumped with ocean water, ensuring the lobsters stay happy and healthy.


Need help with logistics?  Just Ask!

Our knowledgeable staff can arrange a variety of shipping options (via truck of air) to guarantee your lobsters arrive fast and healthy.

Ensuring an efficient process and routes are essential to minimize the out of water time.
