Cape Cod Lobsters

Cape Cod Lobsters

Two Live Lobsters

Our lobsters come from the back shore—the cold, wild, ocean side of Outer Cape Cod. We select hardshell lobsters, full and meaty. Each pair of lobsters is delivered live, complete with cooking instructions and sea salt. You supply the drawn butter. Choose one-and-a-half or two-pounders at a great price (plus shipping cost.)

Lobsters

(Homarus americanus)

Lobsters inhabit the bottom of the Atlantic from Labrador to Cape Hatteras. Ours are from the Outer Cape’s back shore, except during the winter whale migration, when we keep you in lobsters from deeper waters.

  • Live lobsters sport various colors: brown, green and even blue (that's rare); when cooked, they all turn  bright orange-red.
  • Our lobsters are trapped (except when gear is lifted for the whales, we do buy deep-water trawled lobsters), using  gear modified to avoid whale entanglement.
  • Fishwatch—the National Marine Fisheries Service sustainability report—lists lobster in our northern range as healthy.
