If you live away, you don’t have to wait until you visit to get Maine lobster. Like so many people across the country and worldwide, you can have fresh Maine lobster delivered to your door any time of the year. Here at Klenda Seafood, we deliver fresh Maine lobster directly to your door—and we’ve had a lot of practice doing it over the past 40-odd years. Our family-owned company’s priority is ensuring our customers feel confident that our lobsters are responsibly sourced and always the highest quality.

It’s safe to say that in the wake of the pandemic, ordering products online has become second nature for many of us. At Klenda Seafood’s online market, we appreciate how important buying food online is. More than just the convenience of placing orders for fresh Maine lobster from the comfort of your home, unlike buying other merchandise, when it comes to food, everyone wants to ensure they’re getting the best quality and freshest products for their money. This is especially true when it comes to buying lobster. You can rest assured that the lobster you purchase from us is as fresh as if you purchased it directly off the boat. We guarantee quality when buying fresh Maine lobster from Klenda Seafood’s online market. Here’s how!

1. Know the Source 

When buying Maine lobster, knowing your source can make all the difference in the world. Start by shopping with a seafood market or company dedicated to the art of selling locally sourced, wild-caught, and sustainably harvested lobster straight from the depth of the icy waters of the Gulf of Maine. We are committed to supporting responsible, sustainable seafood practices. Even if your grocery store has a lobster tank, there is no way of knowing how long the lobsters have been sitting there or, more troubling, where they were before that—buying lobster tails? Beware—grocery store chains routinely pass off spiny lobster tails as Maine lobster. When you order online from Klenda, know that you will receive the freshest lobster, hand selected on the dock, directly off the boat. From the cold waters of the Gulf of Maine to your door, we pride ourselves in delivering the freshest locally sourced seafood for your dining pleasure. 

2. Quality Assured 

The North Atlantic lobster, more commonly known as Maine lobster, is highly regarded as the best-tasting lobster in the world. Though Maine lobster is part of an immense, global supply chain, each lobster here is still caught in a trap, one lobster at a time. Lobster trapped in the coastal waters of the Gulf of Maine, prepared in Maine, and sold directly to our customers online ensures you receive the freshest seafood of the highest quality. Each lobster we sell is hand selected directly from the boat, and whether live or fresh-picked meat, it is always shipped fresh with no preservatives or additives. 

3. Shipping Methods

Shipping lobster is not a problem. How it is shipped can be. In large part because shipping methods can vary from company to company. We at Klenda utilize industry-leading packaging for shipping all our lobster and seafood products. Live lobster is shipped using humane shipping practices with non-toxic packing material to ensure freshness and to guarantee the shipment is received as advertised. Ordering from us is easy and convenient. With our online shopping cart, our customers can order live lobsters or fresh-picked meat online in a matter of minutes, and we’ll have it ready for delivery directly to your door within 24 hours. 

Our motto at Klenda is ‘Trap, Ship, Eat,’ and is intended to convey the pride we take in ensuring the quality of our lobster products and the integrity of each shipment to you, our customers. Rest assured that whether you order live lobster or fresh-picked lobster meat, it is the best the Gulf of Maine offers.
