Lobsters are caught fresh daily and packed in an insulated Styrofoam container with reusable frozen gel packs. These packages are then shipped overnight via UPS to ensure optimal freshness, and Dorr Lobster’s boxes are designed to hold as little as a single lobster and as much as 50. Larger orders may receive multiple packages. Dorr Lobster shipping and packaging rates are included in their product prices. Lobsters also include cracker kits, a cook book, and a Dorr Lobster magnet.

Dorr Lobster does not cover any UPS weather-related delays, and they are not responsible for packages that are delayed during high-volume shipping periods, such as Memorial Day, July Fourth, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. That said, customers have the ability to choose specific delivery days to ensure they are home to receive the package. If you receive a dead lobster when your package is delivered, call Dorr Lobster as soon as possible and take a picture of the damaged goods. This can speed up the refund process.

Harvesting Methods

Dorr Lobster lobsters are harvested directly from their Bar Island wharf. If lobsters aren’t shipped out the day they’re caught, they are kept in a salt water tank, allowing them to live in their natural environment with less handling prior to shipping. Additionally, Dorr Lobster works under the state of Maine’s strict lobster fishing regulations. They practice sustainable fishing methods to ensure lobster conservation for years to come, buying directly from local fisherman. This allows the company to price their lobsters reasonably and know exactly where the crustacean came from.

Recipes and Resources

Each lobster order comes with a short cookbook, which contains tips and resources for cooking and preparing lobster. Dorr Lobster’s website also includes a handful of recipes – from soups and stews to appetizers and main dishes. Additionally, the company’s customer service arm is extremely responsive, especially when it comes to lobsters that may have been damaged on the ride to your home.

Type of Lobster

Live, hard-shell lobster
