About Ocean State Lobster
25 PERRY AVE, BUZZARDS BAY, MA 02532
Ocean State Lobster Company was established in 1995 in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
We are partnered with a Canadian lobster company that has been in business for over 80 years. Our location here in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts was formed in 2005 to better serve our
customers on Cape Cod and to better access Logan Airport in Boston.
Our Canadian operation buys lobsters from about 80 boats that fish the waters of Nova Scotia. We have the capability of storing over 300,000 lbs. of hard shell lobsters.
This location supplies us with a good supply of high quality lobsters for most of the year, especially when the local supply is molting of sub par.
Our location in Narragansett, RI holds about 50,000 lbs. of lobster in a state of the art refrigerated system. We buy top quality lobsters from 10 to 15 offshore boats, some of whom have been featured on the Discovery Channel’s, “Lobster Wars”.
Our Buzzards Bay, MA location is located next to the Cape Cod Canal. We hold about 25,000 lbs. of lobster in our state of the art refrigerated system. We buy lobsters from several offshore boats that fish Georges Bank, and several inshore boats fishing in Cape Cod Bay that provide us with smaller lobsters.
We have worked hard and have many years of combined experience in the buying and shipping of high quality lobsters. Our specialty is shipping lobsters across the street, across the country, and around the world. We sell only high quality, hard shell lobsters. They are best suited for shipping as they can better handle the stress of long flights, harsh conditions, and rough handling. You will notice the difference in their mortality rate when they arrive, and how long they stay alive in your tanks. Hard shell lobsters contain up to 30 % more meat than soft shell lobsters. Soft shell lobsters simply haven’t had the time to develop fully. Shipping hard shell lobsters results in fewer customer complaints.
At Ocean State Lobster, top quality product and customer satisfaction is our goal!
