California Spiny Lobsters are back for the season!
Available from October–March, these special lobsters are an all-time favorite for seafood lovers.
The Spiny Lobster has a sweeter flavor profile than its counterpart, the Maine Lobster. It also has more meat — generally around 25% more per pound. And unlike Maine Lobsters, they don’t have claws, and instead use their spine and tail as their sources of defense.
These unique lobsters are nighttime scavengers, which means they search for their food after dark. They eat sea life like urchins, snails, smaller fish, clams, and mussels.
