Our own fleet of refrigerated delivery trucks, coupled with the speed of FedEx overnight delivery means fresh seafood—fast—to your door virtually anywhere in the world!
Strategically located on pristine Cape Cod of Massachusetts, Lobster Trap is one of the largest live lobster and fresh fish companies in North America. Beginning over 30 years ago as a retail fish shanty, sea scallops and sword fish were sold wholesale. Over years of hard work and experience Lobster Trap has grown. Now offering more than 100,000 lbs of holding capacity, our state of the art facility has fresh ocean water flowing through tanks and returning to the ocean cleaner than it came in. Lobster Trap is not only HACCP approved and Federally Inspected, it is also a TSA approved Certified Cargo screening facility ensuring not only that our products arrive fresh but also safely.
As fishing seasons and weather permit, lobster comes in from both the length of New England's coastline and Canadian waters. Lobster Trap operates four pounds and two buying stations located in Machiasport and Steuben Maine, providing access to 4,000,000 pounds of product. These subsidiaries are known as BBS Lobster Trap. In addition we operate numerous storage facilities throughout Canada providing holding capacities in excess of 2,000,000 pounds making orders of ANY SIZE possible.
Our parent location on Cape Cod provides us access to some of the richest year round and seasonal fishing grounds in all of New England. We buy as much "day boat" seafood as the fishermen can bring us! We purchase Cod, Haddock, Flounder and Sea Scallops from boats in Chatham, Wellfleet, and Provincetown along with Striped Bass and Nantucket Bay Scallops from Nantucket Sound. Local beds produce an ample supply of both wild and farm raised Shellfish including: Steamer Clams, Mussels, Littlenecks and Oysters. In addition, being on Cape Cod lets us take advantage of the North Atlantic Harpoon Swordfish and Halibut seasons! We offer a variety of fresh seafood every single day- from Salmon, Tuna and Swordfish to Monkfish, Mahi and Snapper!
Lobster Trap fills and ships online retail orders as well. Lobsters-Online.com has been our partner for almost 10 years and offers a variety of our products to online shoppers across the country.
The Lobster Trap is a proud member of Mass Lobsterman's Association, the Lobster Institute of Maine and the National Fisheries Institute. The company offers continued support to instructors and students at the U.S. Coast Guard Northeast Regional Fisheries Training Center to relate aspects of the economy in supply and demand with weather trends and regulations. We feel it is necessary within the marine and fishing community to share and support one another with a common goal to preserve industry.
