Lobsters come in a variety of colors ranging from brownish, to rust-red, to green-brown, to bright blue. If purchasing live lobsters, weight ranges start at “chics” which are 1 – 1 1/4 pound, and go up to up to sizes over 6 pounds.
Lobster has a firm texture and a sweet, mild but distinctive flavor. Claw meat is more tender than the tails and knuckles or “arms”.
Maine harvesters have been environmentally conscious and “eco-friendly” since long before it became fashionable. They harvest their lobsters the same careful way they have for over 125 years — by hand, one trap at a time — thus protecting the quality of their product and the marine environment.
