Product Description 

Our Live Maine Scallops are grown and harvested out of Stonington, Maine by Maine aquaculture pioneers Marsden and son Bob Brewer. Their farm was featured in a New York Times article, "Sea Scallops Farmed in Maine Aren’t Just Sustainable. They’re Helping Their Habitat."  After decades of work in the Maine fishing and aquaculture industries, the Brewer's fully deserve this recognition. 

Live Maine Sea Scallops (in the shell) are available to order online for overnight shipping to your door from our shipping facility in Portland, Maine. You can also order them online for pick-up at our South Portland Fish Market.

How to order our Live Scallops

Orders for our live scallops must be placed by midnight on Tuesday for a Thursday delivery or pick-up. Orders placed after Tuesday will be shipped/delivered the next Thursday, depending on the scallops availability/weather. The scallops are delivered to us fresh out of the water on Wednesday by Marsden.

How to Handle and Prepare Live Sea Scallops

Upon delivery, refrigerate the live scallops immediately. We recommend cooking or preparing these scallops the day you receive them. 

You can prepare these live whole scallops in several ways. One way is to shuck them like you would an oyster. Once you shuck the scallop, you will see a black piece, that is the belly. You should cut the belly out. Once the belly is cut out, the meat is edible as sashimi.

You can also steam these scallops to prepare them. They take approx 1 minute to steam. This process is called a steam shuck. Once steamed, you must again cut the belly out. Once the belly is out, you can eat the rest of the meat.

We strongly recommend eating the whole scallop like an oyster, not just the abductor mussel you typically receive when ordering scallops.

Live Scallops from the Sea Floor to Your Door

These scallops will be alive when you receive them. The scallops are taken directly out of the water in Maine and will be hitting your doorstep in approx. 24 hours.

"Impossible, up to this point, to get fresh seafood where I live. After someone I know recommended SoPo Seafood, I went all in with oysters, sushi grade salmon and sea scallops, sea urchin, halibut, and lobster tails. Simply put, it took me back to a seaside East Coast restaurant. I can finally eat high quality, fresh seafood in my landlocked state almost at will!" - Rafael V

"I have to say 5 stars because of the quality of the Haddock was excellent. The way the fish is packed keeps it fresh from Maine to North Carolina overnight. For us, it's well worth the money. We are returning customers and we'll be back soon buying more haddock for sure." - Michael M
