A Legacy Cast in Maritime Tradition

Sustainability at Our Core

Our practices are deeply rooted in respect for the ocean and its ecosystems. Utilizing the latest technology in refrigeration and filtration, we ensure that even during warm weather, our facilities remain at the optimal temperature of 2 degrees Celsius, preserving the vitality and quality of our lobsters. Our outdoor tidal pound in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, reflects our commitment to natural, sustainable lobster holding methods. This traditional approach, combined with regular feeding and natural water oxygenation with each tide, underscores our dedication to environmental stewardship and sustainable fishing practices.

The Ship's Lobster Difference

What sets us apart is not just our product but our people. The Ship's Lobster family extends beyond the Nickerson brothers to include generations of local fishermen, skilled workers, and dedicated staff, all united by a shared passion for the sea and its bounty. Our relationships with these individuals, some spanning decades, are built on trust, respect, and a mutual commitment to quality and sustainability.


Building a
Sustainable Future

As an approved exporter to the European Union, Ship's Lobster Pound adheres to the highest standards of safety and security regulations, ensuring that our lobsters not only meet but exceed international expectations. Our reputation for excellence has made us a preferred choice for customers across Europe, Asia, and the United States, with a constantly growing list of destinations. Our lobsters are sourced directly from the cold Atlantic waters, guaranteeing a fresh, premium product every time.
