Live Maine Lobsters
Fresh lobster is one of the world’s greatest culinary luxuries—and these wild-caught crustaceans are the best we’ve ever tasted. They’re sustainably harvested from Cundy’s Harbor, home to the oldest commercial lobster village in Maine, then shipped on the same day they are pulled from the pristine Atlantic waters. The succulent meat has a sweet, delicate flavor—a perfect partner for the creamy richness of melted butter.

- Use & Care
Refrigerate the lobsters immediately upon receipt. Live lobsters will keep, refrigerated, up to 24 hours. It is important to keep them moist, covering them with the seaweed provided or a damp towel, until ready to cook. We recommend placing the lobsters on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator, where it is coolest. If you wish, you can place the lobsters in a large baking dish or bowl while in the refrigerator. They have limited movement abilities and will not roam in your refrigerator.
It is important that you do not let the lobsters dry out. Never:
- Store live lobsters in water.
- Place them directly on ice.
- Wrap them in plastic wrap.
- Store in an airtight container.
All of the above can cause the lobsters to suffocate.
The lobsters will be sluggish upon arrival. Handle them with care and be gentle; pick them up by the body, just behind the head, not by the claws or the tail. Excessive force when handling can cause stress or internal injuries, which can weaken or kill the lobsters. It is best to handle them as little as possible. The rubber bands around the claws should be kept in place until you are ready to cook the lobsters.
