East Coast Scallop Box
Sourced from our trusted partner Downeast Dayboat, these sea scallops come from Maine's cold, clear inshore waters or the waters of the Northern Gulf of Maine management area.
A dayboat is a boat that spends 24 hours or less at sea, meaning the fishermen leave the dock in the morning and return in the evening with their catch. This method ensures that the scallops maintain their freshness and quality before arriving at your door.
Downeast Dayboat handles their scallop harvest with great care. Unlike most scallops, they aren’t stored submerged in freshwater. As a result, the taste is never diluted, and the texture remains silky and buttery. They’re also "boat run", which means they come right off the boat with only minimal sorting, so the size will vary. Plan on getting roughly 20 to a pound. Each pound is packaged individually so you can savor your scallops over time.

What are one-time boxes?
Although we try our best to forecast exactly how much of a season’s harvest to purchase from our small-boat fishermen, wild fisheries have some natural variability. It’s both an art and a science to decide how much to buy and how to distribute the catch as evenly as possible among share members. More important and ultimately, species availability is dependent on the health of the fisheries themselves.
When we have a surplus of delicious premium quality seafood after our subscription boxes are packed, we make it available to our members or folks who want to try before they buy shares.
We also have unique and seasonal opportunities to purchase additional seafood from our fishermen or trusted partners (but not necessarily enough for all the shares). When we do, we’ll add them to our one-time box inventory for you to order.
Is this the same fish I get in subscription boxes?
Well, yes and no. The seafood in one-time orders is of the same premium quality from our fishermen or trusted partners. However, not all items in the one-time order will be available in monthly subscription boxes and vice versa.
Can I just order one type of fish?
Sometimes we will offer single species boxes in through one-time orders in addition to mixed species boxes. We are not currently customizing any of our one-time order boxes.
Do you offer discounts when I order more than one box?
Members will receive 10% off one-time order seafood boxes. This applies to ordering one or many. If you are not a member, we encourage you to become one, as access to special discounts and sales are another great membership perk!
