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 wholesaler and exporter of premium quality 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.
And we are proud of our live lobster holding facility! 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. It’s clean, chilled and in constant motion, just like a lobster’s natural habitat.
We go above and beyond to assure quality. We partnered with a leading Nova Scotia technology company (sednatech.io) and equipped each of our holding tanks with sensors to continuously monitor water quality. Accessible by smart phone, our water quality monitoring system will trigger an alert to our in-house maintenance team should any change occur. And we don’t stop there. We manually check each holding tank 3 times a day to ensure salinity, oxygen & ammonia levels are within acceptable parameters.
We’ve surpassed the international Canadian Food Inspection Agency standards for safe seafood management; we operate in full compliance with Air Cargo security and safety standards, allowing us to safely and securely ship our product worldwide, and we are a member of high standing with the Nova Scotia Seafood Alliance.
