No longer a peanuts, popcorn and Cracker Jack menu,  the Fenway Park  food offerings in recent years have gone from hot dogs and beer to Sushi and Vodka drinks. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino while at Fenway recently dined on on a plate of shrimp, lobster, oysters, sushi, chicken and fruit.

Watch Out Hot Dogs

Fast catching up in popularity to the famous Fenway Frank, is the handmade Fenway Lobster Roll,  Fenway chefs said. Made with fresh Maine Lobster, the lobster is cooked just prior to the start of each home game.

“The Fenway hotdog is still king,” Abell told a reporter.  “but the lobster rolls are catching up. Every game we sell thousands of them.”

According to Fenway Park Senior Executive Chef Ron Abell, they will sell about 1,000 pounds of lobster during a typical game. That’s a lot of cooked lobster meat for use in creating the lobster rolls.

“The Fenway hot dog is still king,” Abell told a reporter.  “but the lobster rolls are catching up. Every game we sell thousands of them.”

People love them.

“This was a shocker, but it was one of the best lobster rolls that I’ve had …  Every bite included a large chunk of lobster,”  according to a GreatestLobsteroll.Com review.

A visitor can spend $19 for a Fenway Lobster Roll in the expensive seats, or $13 on the concourse.  Or you can follow the World Famous Fenway Lobster Roll recipe and make yours at home.

Fenway Lobster Roll Secrets for Next 100 Years

While the recipe seems simple, there are some critical ingredients required to be able to reproduce the Fenway Lobster Roll at home.

Abell starts with one fresh, hard shell, two-pound Maine lobster.  A female lobster is preferred. He cautions that all ingredients should be added sparingly so as not to overpower the delicate flavor of the lobster and the toasted bun. Here are the directions and ingredients to makes two lobster rolls.


  • Two pound hard shell Maine lobster
  • 2 tablespoons local farm market chives
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped Tarragon
  • 1 stalk chopped Celery
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sea Salt
  • Two tablespoons fresh Vermont butter
  • New England style hot dog buns with cut sides and open top


  • Add the live lobster to a kettle of roiling salted water and boil for 12 minutes.  When cooked, remove the lobster and pierce the claws and tail shell with a large chef’s knife to allow water to drain.
  • Pull the tail from the body. With the fingers on the underside of the tail shell, crack the shell, split it apart and remove the meat.  Slice the back of the tail meat and remove the intestinal vein  from the tail and discard. Remove any Roe (eggs) and set aside.  Dunk the tail in cool water to wash.
  • Next, crack the claws and knuckles with the chef’s knife. Remove the meat.
  • Chop the lobster meat into chunks and place in a mixing bowl.
  • Chop the local farm market chives and add to bowl
  • Chop tarragon and add to bowl
  • Add mayonnaise to taste
  • Chop celery and add to bowl
  • Add a touch of sea salt
  • Heat griddle and melt two tablespoons fresh Vermont butter
  • Toast until golden brown the  New England rolls on sides and bottom
  • Fill rolls to overflowing with lobster mixture
  • Serve immediately with a garnish of coleslaw on the side
  • As an option, Roe may be added to softened butter and spread on roll.



27 Pound Lobster Released Back Into Wild Off Boothbay Harbor

There is good news for Rocky the lobster.  The 27-pound lobster was released back into the wild off Boothbay Harbor, Maine on February 27, 2012,  just a few days after being captured in a shrimp fishermen’s net.

27 pound lobster
(AP) Maine State Aquarium Director Aimee Hayden-Rodriques holds a 27 pound, nearly 40 inch long, lobster caught by Robert Malone off the coast of Maine near Rockland, Maine on Feb. 17, 2012. The aquarium named the crustacean “Rocky.”

The lobster measured more than 40 inches long and was so big he actually jammed up the escape grates in the shrimp nets which are designed to let lobster go free. The lobster was caught by Robert Malone off the coast of Maine, near Rockland, about five miles out to sea.  Surprised by the lobster’s size,  Malone had a Marine Patrol warden take the lobster to the Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay.   Malone hails from Cushing, Maine,

The aquarium folks thought the crusher claw was probably big enough to really pack a punch so they named the lobster “Rocky.”  According to Elaine Jones, education director for the state’s Department of Marine Resources, Rocky could break a person’s arm.

Maine fishermen aren’t allowed to keep lobsters that are more than five inches from eye stalk to tail.  But even so, Rocky was never in any danger of becoming the guest of honor in a lobster pot – how would you even cook something so large?

Instead Rocky became an instant celebrity.   After posing for news photos and the television cameras, it was decided that Rocky should be retuned to the wild. Even the aquarium was not set up to meet the needs of such a large lobster.  And so he was released.  Everyone expects he will make his way right back out to the deep ocean waters where he will continue to breed.

Rocky was not the largest lobster ever caught.  There is a 1977 record of a 44.5 pound lobster caught in Nova Scotia.  Still the 27 pound beast was impressive.

Aquarium officials said that large lobsters like Rocky are considered brood stock.  It is unusual for them to be in shallow waters close to shore.  They favor the deep ocean.  Officials know there is a population of giant lobsters out there on the bottom of the ocean. And they expect that soon Rocky will be back with the others.

Maine Record Lobster Harvest Tops 100 Million Pounds in 2011

Another record was set by Maine lobster fishermen in 2011 with more than 100 million pounds of live Maine lobster harvested during the year, the Maine Department of Marine Resources announced.  The previous record of 94.7 million pounds was set in 2010.

It was a good year for  lobster aficionados with the Maine record lobster harvest providing in 2011 plenty of fresh lobster for the cook pots.

The state’s preliminary catch numbers for 2011 illustrates just how strong the lobster resource remains, Department of Marine Resources Commissioner Patrick Keliher recently told The Associated Press. The previous record of 94.7 million pounds, worth more than $313 million, was set in 2010.

This was the first time Maine lobster fishermen caught more than 100 million pounds, with officials stating it is a sign that the lobster is alive and well in Maine and that conservation methods embraced by the industry has paid off.

The catch has been rising steadily, according to records.  The harvest topped 80 million pounds for the first time in 2009 and 90 million in 2010.   Back in the 1980’s a 25 million pounds harvest was the norm.

While southern New England states – Massachusetts, Rhode Islandand, Connecticut — have reported a drop in the amount of lobster caught, Maine’s signature seafood is continuing to show strong growth, officials said.

Carl Wilson, a lobster biologist with the Department of Marine Resources, said in the report that the catch has been particularly strong in the waters off the eastern half of Maine’s long ragged coast and is holding its own in the  in the western half of the state’s waters.

The report said lobster in recent years has become increasingly important to Maine’s fishing industry overall, as ground fish, scallops, urchins and other seafood sectors have fallen off.  Out of the total of Maine’s overall seafood harvest, lobster now accounts for about 70 percent of the value.

Although the lobster harvest was strong last year, lobstermen said they are concerned about the low prices they’ve been getting from the dealers. The boat prices, the price a wharf dealer pays the lobster boat owner, have never fully recovered from the 2008 economic meltdown.  A boat owner recently reported that 43% of his sales went to cover the cost of fuel, bait and the sternman crew.  The boat owner said he spent another 13% on other expenses.  The boat owner said he has been lucky that he has not had to cover any major repair expenses and is hoping the boat price recovers this season.

Officials said the final volume report along with the dollar value would be ready by the end of February.

Maine Christmas Lobster Tradition Stands 60 Feet Tall

When Christmas lights and other decorations appear on houses and yards along the famous Maine lobster coast, another strictly Maine lobster tradition occurs. Lobster traps are stacked high on land in the shape of a Christmas tree and are decorated with Christmas lights and become the centerpiece of holiday festivals.

Lobster is considered one of the most popular celebration foods in the country, and the Maine lobster dinner is especially popular during the holidays.  A million pounds or more of live Maine lobster harvested by fisherman from these coastal towns are shipped all over the country between Thanksgiving and New Years.  So it is only natural that towns that provide the fishermen that catch  the popular holiday food should do something special with the tools of the trade.  In one town,  more than a thousand lobster traps were used to create a lobster trap Christmas tree.

According to the Bangor Daily News (BDN),  a 60 foot Lobster Trap Christmas Tree stands  in Beals at the Moosabec Reach from Jonesport.  The traps are  decorated and topped with buoys arranged in the form of a cross.

Another lobster trap Christmas tree stands in Rockland and is more than 30 feet tall and features an  an illuminated lobster.

According to BDN, the two Maine municipalities are like countless other places across the country that erect large Christmas trees in public gathering spots. Only instead of using actual trees, they use decorated lobster traps.

The display in Rockland has been erected every year since 2003. This is the second year the people of  Jonesport and Beals  have decided to get into the act and build one. The Beals’ lobster trap tree consists of 1,364 traps, nearly twice as many as the number they used in 2010. It took roughly a week to build.

According to the locals, serving lobster for celebrations or during the holidays is a tradition older than America itself.  The lobster  trap Christmas tree is just another way to celebrate the tradition.

A television segment about the Lobster trap Christmas trees  is scheduled to be aired on The Learning Channel at 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.


Maine Lobster Boat “Retires” to New Life as Boston Party Boat

What happens when a Cranberry Isle, Maine lobster boat retires after 45 years of lobster harvests and fish seasons and takes on a new life as a party boat right in the heart of Boston harbor’s vibrant new seaport district?

The Belle slips by the Northern Ave. swing bridge in Boston Harbor one summer evening.

Not so surprisingly, according to the cruise operators Charlie Gibbons and Diana Adame, the old lobster boat seems to have found the perfect new home.  Refurbished with attention to detail and lovingly set up to accommodate guests, the 50-foot “Belle” sparkles under the bright city lights.

“The boat was well known and fished for years out of Gloucester and even spent time in Connecticut,” said Captain Gibbons, a former tow boat captain and fisherman.  “I have worked these waters for 30 years and now I want to be able to share my knowledge and offer people a good, fun time.”

Boston Fun Cruises currently embarks from the wharf behind the Barking Crab Restaurant. The vessel is tucked behind the old Northern Avenue swing bridge.  Each cruise begins with the mighty bridge swinging its creaky, old iron rails open so the “Belle” can slip through.

With long sweeping lines, wide working decks and a heavy wooden canopy that stretches from the helm nearly to the stern, the boat provides an intimate vantage for up to 40 passengers.  The foredeck is deep and comfortable allowing guests to sit or stand and safely enjoy an open-air view.

On a recent Sunday evening trip, passengers enjoyed views of everything from the new hotels and restaurants by Liberty Wharf to the imposing, brightly lit downtown skyscrapers.  A sunset canon salute was even observed while passing “Old Ironsides” in Charlestown; the USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned vessel in the US Navy.


To some observers, the Belle is easily recognizable as a Beals Island design, the type of seaworthy fishing vessel that has plied the waters of downeast Maine since the 1950s.   Gibbons said his boat was built in 1965 by boat builders Beal, Bunker and McCallister on Cranberry Isle. Both places are near one another and are famous for their lobster, lobster boats and lobster fishermen.

Harvesting thousands of tons of lobster and fish over all its years, the vessel finished up its fishing career in Gloucester, Mass and was refurbished in 2011.

“We did our restoration on the railways at Rose Marina in Gloucester,” Gibbons said. “With her mahogany and oak planking and all the extras used to prepare her for going to sea, you couldn’t afford to build a boat like this today.”

Boston Fun Cruises is scheduled to operate in spring, summer and fall with a special New Years Eve 2011 harbor cruise scheduled so guests may observe Boston’s famous fireworks.


Nations Oldest Retail Lobster Web Site Marks 14th Anniversary

Cape Cod, Mass. (Oct. 5, 2011) – The Lobster Trap Company & Lobsters-Online.Com today announced the anniversary of its 14th year of selling live lobster with overnight delivery to retail customers all across the United States, making it the oldest Lobster web site in continuous operation.
Launched in 1997, the retail lobster web site became an instant success with its first live-lobster sale coming from a Florida retiree who had recently moved to Tampa from Connecticut and was missing New England lobster.

The Lobsters-Online web site today.

Designed and built by founder Wayne Howe of Boston, the web site was developed originally as a prototype to show off a new e-commerce system and to encourage seafood wholesale vendors to move their 1-800 telephone order business onto the web. Howe was hoping to encourage the seafood outlets to employ the e-commerce system Howe was selling.  Faced with resistance from the wholesalers, who rebuffed his efforts with expressions such as — “Web, what web?  We are fishermen. We don’t know anything about the Internet.”  — Howe decided to take the prototype and use it to create a web based retail seafood business.
Contracting with seafood suppliers, Lobsters-Online.com went live with the click of a mouse.  And within minutes, orders began arriving.
First Sale in Minutes
“I saw the first e-mail alert and couldn’t believe a sale had come in.  We just couldn’t stop smiling,” Howe said.  “It seemed almost unbelievable that someone found the web site so fast.  Back then, e-commerce was supposed to be only for the big retail players.  Yet here we were, a small business able to take a credit card online, authorize it, and then deliver live seafood overnight to anywhere in the country.”
Sales grew steadily until the millennium, when orders came in so fast and so strong during December that it doubled sales for the entire year.
“Even with the automated web site, we were working 24 hours a day to manage all the orders for the holidays and the millennium,” Howe said.  “We needed to request larger trucks to pick up all the orders.  That holiday period was a real deal changer and it helped us map out the successful sales strategy in use today. Repeat business quickly became the engine that kept our sales growing.”
Satisfied Customers
“We have thousands and thousands of satisfied customers who buy from us every year,” Howe said.
Lobsters-Online.Com has served hundreds of thousands of customers and has shipped millions of dollars worth of lobster and seafood. Sales have increased an average of 25 percent per year since the year 2000.
Logan Clark, CEO of the LobsterTrap Company, headquartered in Bourne, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, formed the partnership with Lobsters-Online in 2001.  The 35-year-old Lobster Trap Company is among the largest seafood wholesalers in the country and it boasts sparkling, brand new plant facilities capable of storing thousands of pounds of lobster in seawater tanks. 
Lobster Trap in Maine and Cape Cod
Today the Lobster Trap Company boasts its own lobster boat docks and facilities in Machiasport, ME; Steuben, ME; and Cape Cod.  This ensures that all Lobsters-Online.Com lobsters are fresh off the boats, onto the docks and into the Lobster Trap Company facilities.  There are no middlemen to drive up the price or delay shipping.

Featuring all the best seafood New England has to offer – including hard to find jumbo lobster — the Lobsters-Online.Com web site is open 24 hours a day with fresh live lobster available year round.  Customers that order by 2:30 p.m. EST can receive their lobsters the very next day.  Deliveries are available Tuesday through Saturday.  

October is Maine Lobster Month


Maine and lobster often go together in people’s perception, so it was  an easy step for Maine Gov. Paul R. LePage to  today declare October “Maine Lobster Month.”
The Maine lobster harvest for the year nears its peak in October, according to Gov. LePage.  And since Maine is the home of the American lobster, the governor said it is time to celebrate.  And not just celebrate the joys of lobster to the palate, but the pride for the Maine lobster fishermen as well.
Maine Lobster and Steamer Clams a New England Favorite
 There are 4,260 licensed Maine lobster fisherman. In 2010 they caught a record 93 million pounds of lobster worth more than $310 million. This year officials are hoping for another record harvest.

 “Many people think of summer when they think of lobsters, but the fall is prime time for harvesting lobster, and it’s a crucial time for the industry,” says Dane Somers, executive director of the Maine Lobster Promotion Council. “Each year Maine lobsterman haul in about fifty percent of their annual catch in September, October and November, with October usually seeing the heaviest harvest.”
Gov. LePage said Maine’s picturesque harbors capture a special quality as lobster boats come and go in the pristine, natural environment.  The state leads in lobster fishery conservation and sustainability practices.  The Maine lobster fishery is one of the oldest and most important segments of the Maine economy.

A Steuben, Me. lobster boat leaves the dock.
While the harvest may reach its peak in October, live lobster are available year round.
During the winter the catch is stockpiled in large, natural salt water lobster pounds.  This is why lobster lovers can enjoy baking and steaming live lobster year round.  Many thousands of people enjoy lobster all during the holiday season and when winter snow is on the ground.

Food and Wine Fall Harvest Festival
But for now, folks lucky enough to visit Maine in October can enjoy both Mother Nature’s magnificent fall foliage and a fresh caught lobster dinner.  Portland, Me. is hosting a food and wine fest, Harvest on the Harbor Oct. 20-22, 2011.  If you can’t get to Maine,  fresh Maine lobster can be ordered online in the winter, spring, summer and fall and shipped overnight anywhere in the country.  Celebrate Maine Lobster Month.


Machiasport a Popular Tourist Stop Famous for Lobster


People often ask what a Maine lobster fishing port is like.  Picturesque, quaint, and as if you are referring to Machiasport, older than America itself.  Machiasport, Maine is a popular tourist destination about an hour from Canada and a historic seaport, dating back to 1663. 

The Machias Bay  area — Machias and Machiasport Maine– had a rough beginning, even by Maine standards. The settlers saw buildings sacked three times during its early history.  Once by the French trying to kick the English out of Northern Maine, and later by the British during the Revolutionary War, and again during the War of 1812.
Lobster boats return to Machiasport, ME. facility at end of day.


The legendary June 1775 Naval Battle of Machias  was the first naval battle of the fight for independence  and led to the capture of a British schooner, the HMS Margaretta.  A small group of settlers, having attacked the British schooner by both land and from the coastal sloop Unity, were able to overcome the British and capture the ship.  Later in the war the British returned to burn parts of the town, though they were quickly chased back out to sea by the Militia. The area was attacked by a British Fleet again in 1814 and the fort destroyed a second time.  Later, the federal government rebuilt the fort during the Civil War, but no shots were ever fired.  Fort O’Brien, as it is called, now belongs to the state.

With a population of about 1,100 people,  Machiasport today is far more peaceful than its legendary past and is best known for its historical taverns, charming bed and breakfasts and its seafood, especially lobster.  And of course, its lobster fishermen.

The Lobster Trap Company operates four pounds and two buying stations located in Machiasport and Steuben Maine, providing access to 4,000,000 pounds of product. These subsidiaries are known as BBS Lobster Trap. In addition, the company operates numerous storage facilities throughout Canada providing holding capacities in excess of 2,000,000 pounds making orders of ANY SIZE possible.

The retail online web service leverages the high wholesale volume to provide customers with fresh, select grade, hard shell lobster that are strong and healthy.  This ensures that only the very best lobster make the trip across the country to a customers front door.  Since Lobster Trap buys direct from the fishermen, there are no middlemen.  The result is the best quality, price and service found anywhere online. 

The Lobsters-Online.com web site features great information about lobster along with information on how to steam lobster and steamer clams.

Live Lobster Trap Web Cam Makes Lobster a Star


We now know what a lobster does inside a lobster trap, thanks to “The Lobster Trap Cam” in Halifax harbor.   The live lobster trap web cam was recently placed inside a lobster trap in the popular Nova Scotia fishing town so the curious could go online and watch.  The cam shows the lobster that wander into the trap to have a free meal on the bait and then can’t get out.
Today on the Lobster Trap Cam the lobster in the trap is quite active, facing the camera, snapping the big crusher claw, and pressing itself into a corner.  A large crab moves threateningly from the side of the trap and amazingly, appears to be going after the bigger lobster until the crab decides to leave.  The remarkably clear Canadian harbor water gives web visitors an unusual view of life at the bottom.  Fish, urchins and starfish can be seen passing through the trap.  The picture refreshes every two seconds, with the visiting lobster in the starring role. 

A live lobster appears on a web cam on the bottom of Halifax harbor.
The cam is jointly operated by Murphy’s On the Water and Nova Scotia Webcams.  Murphy’s is a Halifax restaurant and tour boat operator. They report that the Lobster Trap Cam is going viral with more than 65,000 hits. 
While the lobster in the trap may be a star, the truth is, there is little chance that this particular lobster will end up in a hot pot.  A spokesman for the webcam said the lobster are pulled up in the trap and released after “three or four days.”  So while this one will get away, rest assured there are plenty more lobster where this one came from, and many of those lobsters will end up on a stove.
Much of the lobster eaten in the UScomes from Canada.  In fact, the lobster industry is just as important to the Nova Scotia economy as it is to the Maine economy.  It has been no secret that lobster fishermen this year are again hoping for a record catch.  According to state of Maine government data collected from the fishermen, landings were weak in the spring due to the cold weather but now appear to be catching up.  Maine lobstermen landed a record 94.7 million pounds in 2010 so that is the mark to beat in 2011.
One of the reasons that Mainelobster is so abundant is that many of the lobster’s natural enemies are no longer around in any numbers, according to Robert S. Steneck, a marine biologist at the University of Maine.  For example, Cod fish, which eat baby lobster, are largely gone from the ecosystem.   Facts that lobster fisherman are not sad over.  Dr. Steneck is quoted saying that reintroducing Cod fish to the ecosystem would be like “bringing the wolves to your flock.”
While the curious may watch the Lobster Trap Cam, September is a busy time for the lobster industry, with the Labor Day Holiday setting the pace for increased demand.  This time of year, “Shedders,” or soft-shell lobster, are popular with local folks in Maine and Massachusetts. Hard Shell lobster is stronger than soft shell lobster and lives longer out of water so they can be shipped further.  Live lobsters can also be shipped right to people’s homes anywhere in the US thanks to an online lobster service.
Now, thanks to the Lobster Trap Cam and home lobster delivery, a family sitting at a dinner table in Kansascan enjoy a meal of fresh Maine lobster while watching the lobster’s cousin cavort on the web for Lobster Trap Cam.
