Sweet, firm lobster meat is a treat in many cuisines.  Spiny lobsters are harvested from both cold and warm waters.  Clawed lobsters come from cold water and are favored for their sweeter, firmer, more tender meat.

Cold Water (Rock) Lobsters

Both spiny and clawed lobsters are harvested from the north Atlantic and off the coast of New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. Spiny lobsters from Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and South Africa are cold water lobsters.  Also called rock lobsters, they have a bumpy, spiny shell, long antennae and meatier tails than clawed lobsters.  The more popular clawed lobster has two large meat-filled claws.  It is caught on both sides of the north Atlantic:  the European lobster from the northeastern Atlantic, and the American lobster, or Maine lobster, from the eastern coast of North America.


Warm Water Lobsters

Warm water lobsters are caught near California, Florida, the Mediterranean, South Pacific, Caribbean, New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.  Spiny lobsters taken from some of these areas may be marketed as warm water lobsters.  They usually have small yellow flecks on their shell and yellow bands on their tail.  Although the tails are meatier, it may taste fishier.  There are also some Rock Lobsters that are Warm Water Lobsters.  Ours are sometimes of this kind, and are from Brazil.
