Off season, winter keeps the lobster boats close to home, and only the biggest lobster suppliers can be prepared to make sure there is plenty of lobster available all winter. The Lobster Trap Company works hard year round to continue to be able to supply ocean fresh lobster to customers.
What does all that snow mean for lobster lovers?They do this by building natural environment environment salt water lobster pounds that can hold millions of pounds of fresh lobster. This keeps the lobster strong and healthy until they are ready to make their trip to the folks.“We filled our Maine and Canadian pounds with enough lobster to keep filling the FEDEX planes thru the rain, sleet and snow of this year’s terrible winter, just to make sure our customers stay full – and get their fill — of their favorite crustaceans!” Said Dave Madden, Lobster Trap Company vice president of sales.Lobster Trap operates four lobster pounds located in Machiasport and Steuben Maine, providing access to 4,000,000 pounds of live lobster. The company also operates storage facilities throughout Canada providing holding capacities in excess of 2,000,000 pounds. All this means great lobster eating year round, even when the fishing season ends.
So while the snow may be falling, the lobster keeps flying.
