About Us

We are Brian and Julie Soper, the owners of Gurnet Trading Co. 

We began Gurnet Trading Co. back in 2003 initially as a way to sell Brian's diver scallops. But all these years later it has grown into something much more.

We are Maine natives and have been connected to the fishing industry our entire lives. We have been both harvesters and dealers in one shape or another for the last thirty years.  

Today, we are wholesale shelfish dealers, buying lobsters; crabs; clams; scallops; and oysters direct from local fishermen. By procuring directly from the fishermen we cut out middlemen which allows us to keep costs down and promise the freshest seafood possible in our retail and take-out market. 

We have dedicated our lives to the fishing industry and that commitment to seafood has resulted  in continued involvement in state and local resource management committees. We are proud members of our local community and hope to serve you to the best of our abilities.

About Gurnet Trading Co.

Gurnet Trading Co. is both a seafood market and take-out restaurant.


In the seafood market we sell live, fresh, and fresh-frozen local seafood such as lobsters, clams, scallops, oysters, mussels, and haddock. We also stock non-local fishes such as halibut, salmon, tuna, squid, and shrimp. For a full list of current stock visit the Seafood Market tab above.

As for take-out, we have a full menu which includes Maine classics such as lobster rolls, fried clams, haddock sandwiches, and steamed lobster dinners. Our lobster and crab meat is picked in house and we also shuck our own clams. For our current menu visit the Menu tab above.
