Our future is bright! The combination of experience, technology & science has fostered the growth of BMC Seafoods Ltd. into a highly reputable company in the Live Lobster Market. With a capacity to hold 600,000 lbs of live lobster, BMC Seafoods Ltd is one of Atlantic Canada’s largest wholesalers and exporters of live lobster. Purchasing from over 70 sustainable harvesters, BMC is well positioned to source premium quality, hard-shell live lobster from our Maritime Provinces all year round.
We are proud of our live lobster holding facility, where the health and quality of our live lobster stock is achieved by simulating the lobster’s natural environment. We pump 1000 filtered gallons per minute of pristine water from St. Mary’s Bay into our lobster holding tanks which are equipped with sensors for continuous monitoring. Accessible by smart phone, our water quality monitoring system will trigger an alert to our in-house maintenance team should any change occur. We manually check each holding tank 3 times a day to ensure salinity, oxygen, and ammonia levels are within acceptable parameters.
We’ve surpassed the internationally recognized Canadian Food Inspection Agency standards for safe seafood management. We operate in full compliance with Air Cargo Security Standards, allowing us to safely and securely ship our product worldwide. We are a member of high standing with both the Nova Scotia Seafood Alliance and the Marine Stewardship Council
