We source our seafood from harbors off the coast of Maine and Canada to bring traceable, sustainable lobster to customers around the world. Traceability from dock to plate is key to ensuring sustainability, and we are proud to trace every pound of our seafood to the harbor where it was caught so we know the regulations that bind that fishery to sustainable harvesting methods. We make a concerted effort to source all our products from producers and companies who use sustainable practices, are BIPOC owned or operated, or are family-owned whenever possible.
