Paturel International Company
Quality Products & Global Reach
Building on our existing five acre natural live lobster pound, the company has created a live lobster and fresh seafood "quality powerhouse." Using the most efficient equipment and processes, Deer Island is now capable of holding over 200,000 pounds of live lobster in an indoor, cold water system. Our new holding capacity enhances our natural, outdoor tidal pounds with an immeasurable capacity, giving customers guaranteed availability year round.
In addition, a tote-room offers extra capacity to our sophisticated live lobster holding methods. It is fully equipped with a trickle down cold water system that maximizes our plant capacity while creating a stringent, inventory-controlled environment.
