PORTLAND, MAINE - A seafood dealer is planning to build one of the largest lobster processing facilities in the country in Maine, potentially meeting a need the state's lifeblood's industry has long sought to address.

Maine fishermen catch more lobsters than anyone else in the U.S., but the state has a lack of facilities to process their meat for commercial use. Enter Ready Seafood Co. of Portland, which plans to change that with a new 40-acre campus in Saco, 18 miles south of Portland.

The new facility would include space for processing, as well as tanks to keep live lobsters for shipping. Both aspects would rival the largest existing facilities in the state, which has about a half dozen lobster processors, said John and Brendan Ready, the co-owners of the business.
