Maine lobsters yourself while you are in Maine, check out the
laws and regulations beforehand. You need to get a license if
you want to catch these Maine lobsters for commercial or recreational
Maine lobsters are caught with the help of lobster traps, which
are made in such a way that they allow a lobster to enter, but
make it impossible for the big ones to turn around and escape.
This capturing technique allows intended escape of smaller and
younger lobsters since it is illegal to catch lobsters in Maine
less than 1 lb.
Similarly it is not allowed to catch a Maine lobster above
4lb of weight. This is enforced to retain a balanced growth of
lobsters in the area. So if a lobster weighs outside this range,
it cannot be from Maine! Maine lobsters and lobster tails, fresh
or frozen, are available from seafood stores or on the Internet.
We are glad to say that you can make Boston and Maine the perfect
store to order Maine lobster shipped right to your door.
