Maine Lobstering and Sustainable Practices
Maine's lobstermen are bound by stricter regulations than their neighbors in terms of the number of traps they can set, the size of the lobsters they can take, and the means by which they can fish. This keeps lobster populations robust and healthy -- in 2012, the Maine lobster fishery had its largest haul yet, exceeding 123 million pounds.
But the meat in most New York lobster rolls changes hands so many times you can’t tell where or when it was caught.
That means you could be plucking lobsters from exhausted, polluted fisheries, and getting meat that's past its prime. Our lobster is processed immediately after it's brought ashore on the Maine docks, and it is shipped straight to Luke’s Lobster.
There's no middleman or distributor, so our crew can trace your roll back to the very harbor where the lobster was caught.
In addition to buying only responsible Maine lobster, we also support
the fishery’s efforts by donating a portion of our proceeds to the Maine
Lobstermen’s Community Alliance.
