Lobster Holding Facility in Prince Edward Island

Lobsters on the wharf

By The Water Shellfish Inc’s lobster holding facility, located in Prince Edward Island, Canada, consists of eight holding tanks supplied by four nutrient-rich seawater wells. The seawater is always fresh, cold and pumps over 1000 gallons per minute. This environment duplicates the lobster’s natural environment, allowing us to maintain their healthy weight and texture. Our facilities’ tanks can hold up to 750,000 lbs of live lobster, ensuring that supplying Atlantic Canadian Lobster year-round is never a problem.
