Our Live Maine Scallops are grown and harvested out of Stonington, Maine by Maine aquaculture pioneers, Marsden and son Bob Brewer. Their farm was recently 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, local delivery, or for pickup in Maine.

Orders for our live scallops need to 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 availability and weather. The scallops are delivered to us fresh out of the water on Wednesday.

How to Handle and Prepare Live Sea Scallops
Upon delivery refrigerate immediately. We are recommending cooking or preparing these scallops the day you receive them.
You can prepare these live whole scallops in a number of 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 rest of 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 you would an oyster, not just the abductor mussel that you typically receive when ordering scallops.
Live Scallops from the Sea Floor to Your Door
These scallops will be alive when you receive them, they will be snapping and moving. The scallops are taken directly out of the water in Maine and will be hitting your doorstep in approx. 24 hours.
Please note: We pack and prepare all orders the day of shipping to ensure quality and freshness.

Providing my family with the freshest seafood while supporting a small business and our local fishing industry is a Win-Win in my book.
