The Atlantic Canadian Lobster
Seafood connoisseurs often refer to the hard-shelled Canadian Atlantic
Lobster as the "King of Seafood"...
and we would have to agree. Atlantic Lobster is not only delicious,
it is highly versatile and one of the most nutritious sources of
protein you can find. Canadian Atlantic Lobster is known by many
names including: Atlantic Lobster, American Lobster, Canadian Reds,
Northern Lobster and Maine Lobster but no matter what you call it,
once you’ve tasted our lobster you will know why it is King.
Canadian Atlantic Lobsters are harvested in the cold
pristine waters along the rugged north Atlantic coast of
Canada. They are harvested from the icy salt water the same way
they have for generations, in traps attached to lines hauled one
at a time. Since the lobster industry in Canada is based on an integrated
fisheries management approach, it ensures that harvesting and processing
methods are conducted in an ecologically responsible manner. When
you eat Canadian Atlantic Lobster you can be assured the lobster

The hard-shelled difference… The
seasons for harvesting lobster in Canada are staggered to protect
the vulnerable summer moults. While this is a good conservation
measure it also ensures that consumers get the tastier,

carbohydrates while high in protein. In fact, it has less saturated
fat, calories and cholesterol than many of our lean favorites such
as pork, extra lean beef, and white chicken meat. At less than 100
calories per serving (89% of calories from protein), Canadian Atlantic
Lobster is a great meal choice for any diet. See our section on
Nutrition Facts to find out how really good lobster is for you.
