Maine lobsters are the best in the world. They thrive in our cold Atlantic Ocean with its clean water and rocky bottom habitat. Lobsters are harvested year-round but the peak season runs from July through December. Once considered a scrum fish eaten by poor folks, it is now a delicacy shipped worldwide. Right now Maine lobsters are in a crisis situation of having of too many. Quite literally, the cup runnith over. Television ads are running in Maine to encourage people to eat more lobster. There are lobster eating contests along with a major push to get our locals and tourists to eat them every day.
If you go to a local store you can purchase a lobster for usually less than $4.50 per pound. If you visit Maine, by all means, help yourself. If you aren’t coming this way, go online and have them shipped overnight. They will still be good and ready for your dinner table. One of my favorites sources for lobster is Linda Bean’s, but there are many dealers who ship fresh product.
Enjoy them while they last.
