The Maine halibut fishery is tightly regulated through season length, size requirements, and landing limits. Commercial fishermen in Maine state waters are limited to landing 25 halibut per year per vessel. Halibut must be tagged with a Maine State Commercial tag. There are size limits for both the fish itself and the circle hooks used to catch them. This helps ensure that all the halibut landed in Maine are within the legal size maximum of 41" and juvenile fish are not being harvested. There are separate management measures for recreational halibut fishing to further regulate the fishery. The halibut season in Maine is only open for a short time between early-mid May and early-mid June.

This week's halibut is harvested by Captain Frank Guptill, F/V Taylor Nicole, in Port Clyde, Maine. Halibut has a gentle, mild flavor with a firm, thick texture. The fishery is tightly regulated and is open for just a few weeks from mid-May to mid-June, with fishermen limited to handling 25 halibut per season. Each pound of halibut is individually packaged to make it easy to thaw just what you need to cook.
This pack includes: 1 pound raw fillet of sustainably sourced halibut (flash frozen)

Hungry Eaters Love Luke’s
Perfect flavor - favorite of the seafood we have purchased
Due to the fact that the halibut filet was frozen, it was a little dry. In my experience, fish that has been frozen had a tendency to be dry. It was not overcooked. My son put it in aluminum foil and put it on the outdoor grill.
Thanks. Just being honest. Not critical. Just telling how we all felt.
Loved the lobster for the Lobster Rolls!
Thank you for this feedback! We use the same flash-freezing system for all of our fish products as we do for our lobster meat which ensures the seafood stays fresh-tasting. We will follow up with you via email.
Love halibut from Maine. Look forward every year to its season and feeling like you know where it came from. Luke’s has such great quality products! The halibut is beautifully thick with a mild sweet, buttery flavor. Next best thing to being in Maine.

Online Market FAQs
Seriously. Do you deliver LIVE lobster?
Seriously, we do. They’ll arrive fresh from Portland Pier, safe and sound on your doorstep.
How should I store my live lobsters before I cook them?
Refrigerate live lobsters as soon as they arrive! You can put your package directly into your refrigerator, if space allows or transfer them to a lidded pot to store in your fridge. Either way, keep those lobsters cold and cook them within 24 hours! Not sure how to cook live lobster? Check out our instructional video for How to Steam a Lobster.
When will my order arrive?
You will choose your order’s arrival date at checkout from a calendar of available delivery dates, up to 4 weeks in advance! The earliest arrival date is generally two days from when you place your order and delivery is generally available Tuesday through Saturday. Your order may arrive as late as 9PM on the date you select, so plan accordingly! For frozen seafood, we recommend choosing an arrival date 2-3 days prior to when you plan to enjoy the seafood. For live lobsters, order for the date of your event or the day before.
Where do you ship?
We ship to all 50 states and Washington, DC. We are not able to ship live lobsters to Hawaii due to local regulations, but all other products are available! We are not able to ship to Puerto Rico or internationally at this time.
Is flash-frozen seafood actually just as good as fresh?
Frozen seafood can be just as good as fresh, and in some cases better, especially if the “fresh seafood” has gone through a long transport or distribution process. We freeze our lobster using a liquid nitrogen tunnel— the fastest, most high-tech way to freeze lobster in the industry. Lobster meat is sensitive to freezing and thawing, so to preserve fresh-like sweetness and texture, it needs to be frozen as fast as possible and thawed slowly in your refrigerator for 16-24 hours. We do everything we can to ensure perfectly cooked and expertly frozen seafood and all you have to do is make sure you thaw it nice and slowly in the fridge. Our customers who have tried both our fresh and frozen lobster often say the difference is indistinguishable!
How do I thaw frozen seafood?
Frozen items should be thawed in a refrigerator for 16-24 hours depending on your fridge. Once thawed, lobster meat and crab meat should be enjoyed within 6 days. Raw seafood products, like our lobster tails, should be cooked within 2 days. *Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness*
