"I started using SoPo Seafood during the pandemic because I couldn't resist the opportunity of receiving fresh local seafood delivered to my door. I was not disappointed! The service has been outstanding, the fish is so fresh and delicious, and the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend them!"

"I have been ordering regularly from SoPo Seafood for a couple of months now. I LOVE this service. The product is top notch, the communication great and delivery as promised. Providing my family with the freshest seafood while supporting a small business and our local fishing industry is a Win-Win in my book. If you haven't already, give them a try...you won't be disappointed.

SoPo Seafood - Our Mission
The Maine Coast has been home to fishermen, clam-diggers, scallopers, shellfish-farmers, and lobstermen for generations. We want to celebrate and support these local seafood operations by connecting their product with seafood enthusiasts, at home-cooks, professional chefs, and restaurants across the United States.
SoPo Seafood's three founders have been buying and selling seafood in Maine for over 40 years (combined). We want to use our collective experiences to help do our part to keep the seafood industry in Maine alive and well for many generations to come.
Seafood Sourced, Packed, & Shipped from Maine
Getting fresh seafood from the sea floor to your front door is no simple task. Our owners have spent the last 40 years mastering the best practices of how to make it happen so you are never left disappointed.
This process starts with where and who we source our seafood from. We focus on local Maine aqua-farms and fishermen that we have grown to trust over the years. There are a few crucial advantages to sourcing our seafood locally. The first is that the fish has not had to fly thousands of miles before it reaches our facility. By sourcing locally, our fish is fresher and has less of a carbon footprint. The second reason is that we know exactly how the seafood has been handled, ensuring its quality and freshness.
When we source seafood we are looking for the highest quality product we can find, not the cheapest. We then rotate through our fresh fish and shellfish rapidly. What does this mean? It means that unless you catch the fish yourself, you will probably not find fresher.
The final step is how we pack your order. We have spent countless hours working on the most efficient, sustainable, and safe way to ship our seafood. We are proud of our sustainable packaging.
Fresh Seafood from Maine
Maine is home to some of the finest seafood this country has to offer, and we're not just saying that because we're from here!
Maine's lobsters, Bluefin Tuna, oysters, mussels, clams, kelp are adored across the country by top chefs and seafood lovers alike.
We offer a full range of fresh seafood that has been caught or farmed in the Gulf of Maine. You can buy fresh Lobster Meat, Bluefin Tuna, Oysters, Kelp and get delivery right to your door.
Buy Caviar Online
SoPo's owners have accumulated decades of experience within the caviar industry. We know what good caviar is, and we know where good caviar comes from.
We are choosing to support American produced caviar - that is caviar and roe that has been caught or farm-raised in the USA. The vast majority of caviar sold in the United States is imported from China and Europe – we want to see (and help) the caviar industry in this country grow to the point where the majority of caviar sold in the USA is produced here also.
If you are interested in buying caviar online but you have some questions, please feel free to call us at (877) 282-7676. We are always more than happy to help guide you through our selection.
