How it all began.
When Dave Garbo was thirteen years old, he began fishing for lobster. Getting up at three o’clock in the morning, he would set traps in Connecticut’s New Haven Harbor and then go off to school. By the age of seventeen, he was running a seventy-foot offshore lobster boat based in Stonington, Connecticut and catching lobsters off the Continental Shelf, 150 miles from shore.
After close to ten years of offshore fishing, Dave, at the age of 26, established Garbo Lobster Company in 1983. With just a few fiberglass tanks in Stonington Borough, Connecticut, the organization was born. Today, the company is a leader in the seafood industry.
