Maine Lobster Now offers delivery Tuesday through Saturday. Customers can choose their delivery date.

Live lobster is always shipped FedEx Next Day Air. Customers can choose their level of FedEx delivery service for lobster meat and other frozen seafood.

Harvesting and Holding Methods

Maine Lobster Now doesn’t just sell wild-caught lobster. They sell fresh-caught, non-pounded lobster. This means your lobster won’t have suffered from prolonged exposure to sections of ocean water that have cordoned off to store live lobster. This can lead to the ingestion of the shells of other lobsters, creating something known as shell disease as well as other problems with otherwise top-shelf live lobster. The company also faithfully adheres to the trap and size limits as set forth by the Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) to maintain sustainable harvesting practices.
