Fisherman’s Fleet is based in Wayland, Massachusetts and has been selling Eastern-seaboard seafood since 1979. Since that time, they’ve grown into a veritable seafood empire with a wholesale division, restaurants, and of course - their UPS Overnight division, which ships fresh seafood to customers across the country. We are pleased to include Fisherman’s Fleet among our top-rated seafood market sites.
Fisherman’s Fleet is your quintessential Maine seafood proprietor and sells everything you’d expect to find from a seafood merchant based in this part of the world. Live Maine Lobsters (up to 3lbs) are their top-seller. They also sell Frozen Main Lobster Tails and Frozen Lobster Meat. In addition to Lobster, Fisherman’s Fleet sells Clambake packages, King Crab, Fresh Shellfish, Fresh Fish Fillets, Organic Steaks and Seafood, Caviar and Smoked Seafood.
Another top-seller at Fisherman’s Fleet is their award-winning Clam Chowder and Lobster Bisque; both hallmark food items from Maine. Their Chowders/Bisques are made with locally fresh ingredients (no preservatives). The Clam Chowder is made with half and half, clams, clam juice, water potatoes, barley and secret clam spices. The Lobster Bisque is made with half-and-half, milk, cream, lobster meat, onions, tomatoes, paprika and other secret spices. These prepared foods are not to be missed!
Fisherman’s Fleet has one of the biggest inventories you’ll find on any online seafood site. They sell live Main Lobsters and delicious “Yankee Clambakes” (which includes Lobster, Steamer Clams, Chowder, claw crackers, bibs and forks). Their Shellfish selection includes Alaskan King Crab Legs, (whole) Jonah Crabs, Fresh Florida gulf shrimp, Cherrystones (Clams), Cultured Count Neck Clams, Cultured Mussels, Steamer Clams Fresh Oysters.
Their Fresh Seafood selection is just as impressive, and includes Atlantic Salmon, Bluefish, Halibut, New England Scrod, North Atlantic Sea Scallops, Salt Cod, Swordfish and Yellowfin Tuna. They also sell Smoked Seafood (Finnan Hoddie, Smoked Mussels, Smoked Scallops and Smoked North Atlantic Salmon), Salmon Caviar, Sevruga Caviar and Organic Steaks.
Fisherman’s Fleet is also a wholesale seafood provider, selling to restaurants, hotels and institutions nationwide. They have a huge wholesale product list on their site and offer five Customized Food Service Programs to help best meet your business’ needs.
Fisherman’s Fleet always has some kind of special going on, and we love them for it. They also have a nice variety of seafood recipes on their site. If it’s a gift certificate you’re looking for, they have that too. Corporate gifts are also available on their site. One of the final extras we love about Fisherman’s Fleet - their catalog (available online in PDF or by mail).
We also love their industry first, “Double your money-back guarantee.” If you’re not completely satisfied with the quality or freshness of your order, they will refund your money back - twice. Can’t beat that.
Fisherman’s Fleet is one of the best seafood merchants on the East Coast, if not the entire country. From their award-winning and mouth-watering Clam Chowder and their huge live Maine Lobsters to providing corporate gifts and a thorough catalog, Fisherman’s Fleet is without question a head above the rest, and we are excited to include them in our Seafood Market Review.
