Logistical Process of How it Works

Fishing and Crabbing

Before sunrise, fishermen & local crabbers head out to work in the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding waters. Fishermen go out during the coolest time of the night to avoid fish from over heating. Fishing early gives them enough time to bring their fresh catch to our warehouse to be shipped and processed the next day.
Fishing and Catching Methods

Arrival and Process

  • Our crab meat and oysters arrive early in the morning at Maryland Seafood Market from local distributors.
  • Our live crabs are steamed and cooked the same day they are caught. Once cooked, we place steamed crabs in our cooler to be cooled down before shipping.
  • Fresh Rock Fish fillets are cut to order the same day that is shipped to optimize shelf life
