About Us

 

 In 2008, while searching unsuccessfuly for gainful employment, we decided to start selling Maine lobster in Naugatuck, CT along the side of the street on Rubber Avenue. The following year, we purchased a refrigerated truck and expanded our product line to include fresh wild caught fish and shellfish. In addition to our base in Naugatuck, we participated in winter farmer's markets in Norwalk, Westport, and Weston, CT.

 

Currently, our travel day to Connecticut is Thursday for sales on Friday. We begin loading our fresh seafood from the Pemaquid peninsula early in the morning and finish along the waterfront in Portland. This is where the fillet houses purchase their fish from America's oldest display auction.

 

With over thirty years of experience in the industry, our philosophy is to buy our seafood only from licensed harvesters, processors and dealers. This helps ensure that our customers are getting the highest quality seafood from the area.

 

Pemaquid Lobster & Seafood is HACCP certified as mandated by the FDA. Furthermore, we are licensed and routinely inspected by The Maine Department of Marine Resources and the Naugatuck Valley Health District.
