Your order is caught
On Sunday night we coordinate with fishermen to determine where and when your scallops will be caught.

Within 24 hours of harvest your scallops are on their way to you.
Unbox your order and enjoy the best scallops (or other seafood) you've ever tasted.
Caught for you.
Our warehouse is the ocean floor.
We don’t operate like any other seafood business. We don’t have a warehouse full of seafood – our scallops stay on the ocean floor until you order them. On Sunday night we review the weather forecast and coordinate with our partner fishermen to determine which ports to buy from on what day. On harvest day we travel the coast picking up scallops, package them that night and ship them the next day.
Maine’s cold, pure waters produce the very best tasting shellfish in the world. And our process ensures it reaches your hands just as delicious as it was when it left the ocean.
THIS is how scallops should taste.
Did you know scallops from different areas have different tastes and textures, just like oysters? If you buy two or more pounds we'll do our best to get you two different varietals so you can experience hold an in-home tasting: the differences are often subtle, but you'll notice them, particularly if you eat them raw. You may find a favorite but don't worry: all Downeast Dayboat scallops are guaranteed to be delicious.
What People are Saying...
Appreciate the difference a day makes— John T.
"I have to say your product is the best I've ever had here on the West Coast, in spite of having a restaurant where I can order pretty much anything. I truly appreciate the difference a day makes and thank you for being there to deliver!
You've ruined all other scallops for me!— Ron S.
"I've bought, cooked, and eaten what I thought were the best scallops the ocean had to offer and then I tried yours."
Sweet and unbelievable fragrance.— Kelley K.
"I just ran out of my frozen supply from you about 2 weeks ago… and the alternative just sucks… so be prepared for even bigger orders from you each week when the fresh season starts!"
