Quality & Sustainability
Quality assurance plays an important role every step of the way at Riverside Lobster. Buy with confidence knowing that we meet and/or exceed Canadian Government regulation in addition to a wide range of international quality standards. We have strict protocols in place throughout our facilities including multiple daily sample and equipment testing, audits and near instant freezing technology.
Sustainability is also very important to us. Our livelihood depends on it. Lobster fishing in Canada is governed by many regulatory protections. The most important steps we take are to stagger and rotate our fishing season. Each area is designated a fishing season different from the neighbouring areas. We also avoid harvesting lobster during the summer moulting season, when lobsters are at their most vulnerable. Our customers can rest assured that our products are sourced in an ecologically responsible manner.
Riverside Lobster is proud to be located in the Acadian region of Clare, Nova Scotia. For more than 250 years, the inhabitants of this area have lived by and on the sea. The lobster fishing industry is the cornerstone of our economy and therefore hold a special place in our hearts.
Riverside Lobster believes in giving back to the community by sponsoring and participating in various events, charities, and by supporting local organizations. We also work with local schools in fundraising, internships and various other projects.
