Ready Seafood is a family owned business founded by John and Brendan Ready located on the working waterfront of Portland, Maine. John and Brendan grew up as lobstermen and have great respect for the ones who work the sea.

Today, John and Brendan have transitioned from harvesting lobster to running one of the largest global wholesale lobster companies in the industry. We ship hundreds of thousands of pounds of lobster worldwide every week. No order is too large or too small.

Ready Seafood's business model focuses on quality, sustainability and traceability. No one else can link specific harvesters with customers around the world the way we do. We pride ourselves on knowing where every lobster comes from as this ensures that our customers receive the freshest lobster possible.

The Ready Seafood Team looks forward to working with you!

Ready Seafood Company


At Ready Seafood, quality is our top priority. We have developed a unique two tank-one touch system so that our lobsters are only handled once before shipping. Years of experience have taught us that our method significantly reduces stress on lobsters and ensures that Ready Seafood customers receive only the freshest lobster possible.


The Maine lobster fishery is a model for sustainability worldwide. Landings in Maine continue to increase year after year. The Marine Stewardship Council has certified our fishery as sustainable. We now have an on-staff marine biologist who will be collaborating on projects throughout the region to improve our understanding of Maine's lobster resource. At Ready Seafood we are proud to be part of an industry that cares about the next generation.


We purchase all of our lobsters from independent harvesters at 4 buying stations in Maine and 1 in Canada. Each crate we purchase is tagged with individual harvester's name and catch date to ensure traceability through the supply chain.
