Maine Lobsters are found off of the east coast of the United States and Canada. The American Lobster also known as a Maine Lobster, is most common live in restaurants and supermarkets. Clawed lobsters contain more meat then spiny lobsters thus they are most commonly sold live. Clawed lobsters are typically cold water lobsters. Clawed lobsters thrive in cold, shallow waters as far north as New Found land and as far south as North Carolina. Lobsters usually live in deep water in the fall and return to shallower depths in the spring.
Spiny lobsters have no claws, have a harder shell and have very large antenna. The two main regions that support spiny lobsters are the California coast and in the Caribbean. Because spiny lobsters have no claws, most of the meat is contained in the lobster tails. Because of this, spiny lobsters are most often sold live locally or usually harvested just for the lobster tail. Spiny lobsters are typically warm water lobsters.
North Australian Lobsters are known for their colored green shell. These lobsters are from the Northern coast of Australia and have a smooth and mild flavor. Each North Australian tail weighs between 8-10 oz.
Brazilian lobsters are from the warm waters off the coast of Brazil. These waters provide the perfect setting for some of the best tasting warm water lobster tails in the world.
European lobsters typically have a darker color and the claws may be slightly smaller.
New Zealand lobster tails are from the cold, deep waters of the South Pacific. The deep scarlet-colored shell has a sweet & smooth meat is what makes our New Zealand tails so distinct.
