Our mission starts with you and motivates us!


J. Lionel Maine Lobster Company celebrates the waterman’s spirit for high-quality fresh seafood.  Sending our vessels to barrier straits along Maine’s 3,478 miles of vibrant waterways, our crew catches massive red lobsters weighing up to 10 pounds! Maine’s coast allows monster lobsters a foraging “aquarium” for crabs, starfish, mussels, and healthy fish.  With this diet, lobster enthusiasts enjoy satisfying dietary phosphorous, potassium, protein, selenium, copper, and zinc needs.  Our company celebrates not only the nutrients but joins in the seafood quest for succulent sweet lobsters that taste buttery with baking.  Knowing that many chefs require choices for products to satisfy dishes from seafood paella to lobster rolls, our captain, James directs his crew to catch warm water lobsters along the Caribbean and Florida Coasts.  Likewise, he sends other ships to North Carolina for sweet shrimp and Prince Edward Island for mussels.  No matter the seafood request, we design our mission to supply high-quality products at competitive prices.


Our culture drives our company!


J. Lionel Maine Lobster Company, named in honor of the founder's father operates in southern Maine, a stone's throw away from Sebago Lake and Presumpscot River. Many native Maine watermen help us in our quest for the ultimate catch.  Named after Captain James’s father, a family culture drives standards.  Father watches son and son watches grandson.  Techniques and timeless practices as baiting the pots and fishing in ideal locations directly results from experience and charting successes and trends in the waterways.  Either diving or “fishing” the lobsters with our crew or partnering with other vessels from Central America, our team always desires a tremendous catch. For example, our divers trap both cold water lobster from Canada and US waters and warm water lobster from Columbia, Brazil and Nicaragua. Once we have ensured that the product is of the best quality, we ship live lobsters to all lower 48 United States and certain regions in Alaska, while frozen lobster and tails ship to all 50 states!
