New England Folks Love Their Lobster Wherever They Live

Feb. 25, 2013 — Lobsters-Online starts the New Year with a deep breath as the prior Christmas and New Year holiday period is our busiest time of the year for shipping live lobster.  During the six-week holiday period folks from all over the country use the lobster shipping service to order New England seafood for their dinner celebrations. From Michigan to Florida, Georgia to California, the orders were shipped to families in every state in the country.

Many Lobsters-Online customers are what we affectionately term ex-patriots, or more narrowly, former residents of New England.  And while they have left the Northeast and have ended up living in various places, all these people have one thing in common. They miss their Maine lobster, shellfish and other New England seafood treats.

Lobsters-Online always enjoys when we hear back from our former New England natives.  Today seemed like a good time to share a few of their much appreciated comments:

“I recently ordered two 5 lb lobsters for my husbands 65th birthday.  I have to tell you that he was very surprised and they were absolutely excellent.  We are both from Connecticut and now live in Florida.  Floridians have no idea what real lobster is until they try Maine lobster.  You gave us not only a wonderful meal but brought back memories of New England.  I have put your name on Facebook to all my friends so you will be getting more orders.  Thank you so much.  And Happy New Year.” – Maxine D,Spring Hill Florida. 

“Just wanted to send a note of appreciation as we close out another great
lobster, shellfish, seafood dinner. This is either our third or fourth order in just
this past year and your products and services are consistently excellent. My
wife is a native New England “coastie” and these meals go a long way toward keeping
the beatings (on me)  to a minimum for my dragging her to Colorado. Have a great New Year.” —  Don P., Colorado 

“Just a note to thank you again for taking such great care with my order this past Christmas season. I have been sending a gift to my parents for several years from your company.  However, this year they were absolutely thrilled as I sent them live lobster, and your New England lobster chowder. Thank you for taking such good care … start to finish. It is so nice to know that you continue to do an incredible job.” — Steve L., Tampa Bay, Florida 

“This is our third year ordering from your service.  This year we ordered the jumbo lobster tails for Christmas Eve dinner along with your chowders.  The tails were big, fresh and delicious.  We baked and stuffed them with crab following my mother’s recipe.  She is from Maine, and knows good lobster when she sees it.  A good time was had by all.  Thank you again for your service.”  — Annette P., Punta Gorda, Florida.

Winter and When Will it End for Lobster Lovers?

 

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.
