Sea Salt Lobster is as close as you can get to having a lobsterman friend who catches succulent Maine lobster and delivers it direct to you for optimum freshness. Owners and Maine natives Morey Highbarger and Shawn McEwen, who founded their business in 2009 as a lobster wholesaler and opened a seafood restaurant and market in 2015, work directly with longstanding lobstermen to bring you a true taste of Maine straight from the dock. If it’s high-quality, ultrafresh, sustainable lobsters, lobster tails, lobster rolls, “chowdah” and fresh sea scallops you’re after, Sea Salt is the way to get them all professionally packed and shipped overnight to you for the ultimate Maine experience.

About The Food

You won’t find fresher, juicier, more delectable Maine lobsters than those harvested by the lobstermen who sell their bounty to Sea Salt daily at a wharf in the midcoast of Maine. Order them live or as ready-to-eat juicy lobster meat, tails, or rolls, or try their not-easy-to-get fresh sea scallops, the same ones high-end seafood houses serve (those scallops you buy in even high-end markets are previously frozen.) We’ve tried a lot of mail-order lobster—in fact, our search for the best delivered fresh lobster inspired our founding of this company—and Sea Salt is exactly the type of company we hoped to find. You’re a few clicks of the mouse from bringing an authentic taste of New England directly to your door.

Meet The Owner

Sea Salt Lobster came to life in 2006 through the vision of Maine natives and entrepreneurs, Shawn McEwen and Morey Highbarger. Growing up in coastal Maine both Shawn and Morey new how lucky they were to enjoy all that Maine has to offer especially Maine Lobster. Later in life when the opportunity presented itself for them to bring this Maine staple to the rest of the country they jumped at the chance. It was important to both of them to bring the best quality lobsters products to their customer base and to promote the Maine brand. Ten years later this still holds true. Sea Salt has grown from two Mainers with the passion and drive to bring quality Maine products to those outside of the state, to one of the largest lobster distributors in the state with over 30 employees. Sea Salt Lobster has expanded their vision and is now delivering the great tastes of Maine around the globe.
