Due to difficulties with FedEx due to the current pandemic, we have decided to not send frozen items from Thursday to Sunday - to account for any delays. We will also pack for 2 day shipping, should there be a delay. During this time, orders via FedEx Overnight Priority are sent from Monday to Wednesday each week, to arrive next day (Tuesday to Friday).
- Orders received Wednesday after 10am PDT time will be sent on Monday the following week
*We will not send orders on 12/23 due to delays running into the Christmas period. Orders received after 12pm on 12/22 will be sent on Monday December 28th.
Items which do not require refrigeration can be sent via FedEx Ground shipping. Items will be sent the day after the order is received Monday through Friday. Shipping times are 1-2 days in California and 4-5 days nationwide.
Fedex Shipping Prices:
- FedEx Overnight Priority - rates are calculated by the shipment weight and box size required, along with the state the product is being shipped to.
- FedEx Ground - flat rate of $9.95 nationwide (lower 48) for any order size.
We are happy to provide customers with the option to have orders delivered on a specific date, as per our shipping schedule stated above. If you wish to place an order to arrive on a specific date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number and specifying the date you wish the order to be delivered. Please note: we cannot deliver on Monday for FedEx options.
Once we ship a package we will send you the Fedex tracking number that applies to your order. You can then track your package to know where it is exactly in transit the following day.

Please note, we ship all parcels Authorized Release, meaning if no one is home, the parcels may be left by the carrier at your door, and only if the carrier feels it is safe to do so. Carriers sometimes leave packages behind bushes or at conspicuous locations to avoid theft. If at all possible, we recommend that you make arrangements to have someone home upon delivery or send to a business address which will be open. Packages that are not left at the door will be returned to the station for re-delivery the following day or available for pick up at the local Carrier station. Please note, we do not guarantee products after the first day, once a product has been attempted for delivery.
Acts of God/Weather Delays
Weather delays can be unexpected, and can result in the delay of your package. In the event that this should happen, we will immediately notify you on the status of your shipment. In some cases we may know of a weather delay just before we are about to ship your package. In this event happens, we will call you to discuss a potential rescheduling of your product to a later date.
Please note that neither Terra Mare Prime nor our shipping partner, FedEx will be held responsible for delays resulting in “Acts of God”. This is stated in their shipping policies and therefore is also our policy. We will however do everything we can to get your package delivered in a timely manner and with a view to minimize the chance of loss.
We are unable to ship to APO/FPO, P.O. Box’s, Rural Routes & destinations outside the U.S.A. If you are unsure if your address can be shipped, please contact us prior to placing your order or obtain an alternate address that is a physical business or residential location.
Please ensure you enter in the proper address for us to ship your packages. Incorrect addresses can also cause delays and additional cost to correct/ reroute. We will not be held responsible for the spoilage or reimbursement of shipping charges and address correction fees should this occur. Please keep in mind incorrect addresses can take an additional day to be re-routed and re-delivered.
Returns & Credits
The only time we issue credits is when a customer receives a parcel late and the lobsters are not alive upon delivery and you had notified us within 3 hours of receiving your parcel, by talking to someone live or leaving us a voice message. We reserve the right to request that the parcel delivered is shipped back to us for inspection. We will then issue you a credit or refund on the portion of product that was not delivered in good order.
If you are not fully satisfied with your order, please call us and speak to a customer service representative. We reserve the right to conduct an investigation into claims that are potentially fraudulent. Please do not discard any packaging or product until you are completely satisfied with the product. On occasion, Terra Mare Prime may deem it necessary to have the package and contents returned to us for inspection. All claims must be made on day of delivery by calling (310) 344 4707. No claims will be honored if not made on day of delivery.
