Three Sons Lobster & Fish
offers packaging for walk-in customers, as well as shipping customers.
The packaging we use for shipping and sell to walk-in customers are
sturdy and reusable. Customers are also welcome to bring their own packaging such as coolers. Three Sons Lobster & Fish
carries frozen gel packs to keep the Lobsters and seafood cool. This is
essential regardless of the distance the product is being carried.
How We Pack Lobsters
we pack lobsters or seafood to ship or travel to any location it is
packed in a Styrofoam container with frozen gel packs placed on the
bottom. Newspaper soaked in fresh salt water is placed on top of the
gel packs. The Lobster and other seafood products are then situated in
the box with more wet newspaper laid over the top. More gel packs are
then placed on top with a Styrofoam cover and the entire package is
then put in a cardboard box which is taped and secured.
These prices are for cooler boxes and gel packs only, and do not include the cost of seafood. These are not shipping prices.
Can you explain the full-cook option
for travel and shipping? Hard-Shell
Lobsters live 24-36 hours out of water, and Soft-Shells live about 6-8
hours out of water. Let's say you want to pick up your lobsters (or
have them shipped), but know you will cook and eat them over the
recommended time to keep the lobsters live. Full-cooking is certainly
the way to go in this situation! If we
full-cook your lobsters before packing for travel or
shipping, this gives you an additional 24-36 hours before you would
need to finish the cooking process. You MUST keep the lobsters cold! The
gel packs in the packing/shipping boxes help keep the lobsters and
seafood cold for about 24-36 hours, so it is imperative that you get
the entire box, or take the lobsters and seafood out of the box, and
get them in your fridge as soon as possible! There will be a sticker on
the packing/shipping box reminding you to do this, and appropriate
cooking instructions will be inside your box as well. Of course, if we
are open, we are here to answer any questions you might have!
