At Klenda Seafood, you will find fresh lobster meat harvested right off the coast, direct from the Gulf of Maine. Our Maine lobster is hand-picked to ensure more high-quality lobster meat per pound. Each day, our meat is cooked to perfection to maintain its freshness, texture, and the sweet flavor that is so unique to Maine lobster.
Chefs and wholesalers have come to depend on us to supply some of the finest, most delicious fresh lobster meat for their customers. We only sell Maine wild-caught lobsters that are cooked and prepared following our own proprietary methods that were perfected in 1982. That method 100% guarantees and ensures freshness, texture, and flavor that has stood the test of time.
Fresh, Sustainable Seafood
The locally-owned, multi-generational family business grew up and came of age on Maine’s coastal waters, and is part of the greater Maine lobster industry that supports sustainable seafood practices.
We see ourselves as guardians of the sea, in that we help sustain Maine’s fishing communities. We’re part of Maine’s thriving ocean ecosystem that honors the age-old method of harvesting lobster. Though part of an immense, global supply chain, Maine lobsters are still caught in traps, one lobster at a time.
Lobster caught in Maine, prepared in Maine, and sold to wholesalers and fine dining establishments ensures our seafood is always fresh. You can taste the difference. There are no preservatives or additives and it’s one of the main reasons we provide a better product.
Why Maine Lobster?
The North Atlantic lobster, commonly referred to as the Maine lobster, is regarded by many as the best tasting lobster in the world. The northern Atlantic is the perfect natural environment for lobsters to thrive in. The clean, frigid waters not only slow the growth rate of lobsters, but prevent the salt water from permeating the meat. That combination produces the most tender, succulent meat of any species of lobster. The icy waters provide a luxurious, rich texture and a firmer, noticeably sweeter tasting lobster. It’s the reason that four out of every five lobsters served in restaurants throughout the United States are harvested from the coast of Maine.
Chefs, restaurateurs, and food purchasers seeking high-quality fresh Maine lobster meat need shop no further than at Klenda Seafood. Our lobsters are sourced here in Maine and then hand-picked for freshness. We locate and harvest the very best that Maine’s coast has to offer–consistently, and in the sizes and quantities our customers need. Each lobster we process is evaluated for its freshness by hand—as fresh as if you had caught in Maine and prepared them yourself.
Our prepared fresh lobster meat is perfect for any lobster recipe. It is always fresh, never frozen. We cook them immediately upon delivery from the lobster boats. This ensures that you receive the highest quality, freshest and most savory, sweet-tasting lobster meat on the market.
We understand that different sections of the lobster are prepared for different dishes. Our lobster meat is drawn from the tail, big claws and knuckles. The tail has approximately half the meat found in a Maine lobster. It’s firmer than the claws and better suited for deep frying entrees. The meat found in the big claws and the knuckles, its arm-like appendages that attach the big claws to the main body is much more tender. Those big claws account for nearly half the lobster’s weight and have a moist, sweet flavor perfect for lobster rolls and salads.
