Fresh Canadian Lobster Supplied Year-Round

The Canadian Atlantic Lobster (Homarus americanus) is Canada’s most valuable seafood product. All points around the globe enjoy the delicious lobster from the Atlantic provinces of Canada.

A highly versatile and nutritious source of protein, Canadian Atlantic Lobster is harvested hard-shelled and known by many names across continents. No matter what you call it, once you’ve tasted our lobster, you will know why it is the King. Many consumers around the world prefer hard-shell lobsters over soft-shell lobsters.

By The Water Shellfish Inc ships around the globe to all major cities year-round. If you reside in the United States (USA), Europe (EU), or any Asian country, we can supply fresh Atlantic Canadian Lobster to you.

Hard-Shelled Versus Soft-Shelled Lobster

As the Atlantic Lobster must shed its shell to grow, it will show a thinner, softer shell post moulting. In Canada, the lobster season falters at the time of moulting in summer, and most Canadian Atlantic Lobsters are hard-shelled. Hard-shell lobsters are commonly preferred over soft-shell lobsters due to their high meat content, firmness and low chances of cracking en route. A hard-shell Atlantic Lobster requires some effort to crack, but it is worth trying it.
