LOBSTERCalifornia Spiny Lobster VS. Maine Lobster VS. South African Lobster Tails

Local Spiny

Super flavorful, sweet, incredibly fresh. Medium amount of effort to extract the meat. Incredibly rare experience to eat these. The local fishery generates about 2 Million pounds, Baja Mexico another two.

Maine Lobster (North American Hardshell Lobster)

Tender, flavorful, Lots of work to extract meat. Delicious and lovely but always fairly common. Just for reference this industry together with neighboring Nova Scotia lobster fishery puts over 200 Million pounds of animals out into the world on a yearly basis.
