“First experience with SoPo! Marvelous in every respect. Ordered 2 pounds of scallops for delivery to New York. Perfect packaging. Arrived exactly on time, and scallops were beautiful and delicious.” – Ruth - 5 Star Google review ⭐


Our Maine Dayboat scallops are ocean-fresh and sushi-grade quality. When you buy dayboat scallops, you directly support local fishermen in Maine.  

What is a Dayboat Scallop?

Maine Dayboat Scallops are caught by local fishermen and landed on the same day they are harvested. The vast majority of scallops are caught by longer-trip vessels and either frozen at sea or treated with preservatives.

Dayboat scallops are ocean-fresh. They have never been frozen or treated with preservatives.

Caught by Local Maine Fishermen

One of the fishermen we source our Maine dayboats from is Captain Larry Rich. He is the captain of the F/V Fisherman's Pride, located on Holyoke Wharf. Larry spends around 4-6 hours at sea before coming back in with his catch. We then receive the scallops from Larry and ship them directly out! 

The Fisherman's Pride can be seen below, docked at Holyoke Wharf. SoPo Seafood's facility is located behind this boat.

Another local fisherman we source our dayboat scallops from is Captain Craig Stewart. Craig has been lobstering and scalloping out of Long Island in Casco Bay, Maine, for more than 40 years!
