Thousands of passionate, hard-working Atlantic Canadians work together to manage 41 unique harvesting areas throughout our region. With generations of expertise, we’re proud to hold, process, and distribute the most renowned, delicious lobster in the world to restaurants, retailers, and consumers in every imaginable market.

With a 2019 export value of $2.6 billion dollars, the Canadian lobster fishery brings sustainable economic well-being to hundreds of communities in five provinces. Our lobster sector reflects the natural wealth of our Atlantic coast: the cold and clear waters preferred by the prized Homarus Americanus, high quality premium products, honest and hard working people, and a celebrated history of hospitality and ingenuity on the sea.

Atlantic Canada is the ‘stomping ground’ of the world’s very best lobster. We’re proud to bring it to you, wherever you are.
