live maine lobsters MAINE LOBSTER- WILD Maine  Flavor Profile: Cold water lobster generally has a firmer flesh and a more succulent taste. This is often attributed to the fact that cold water lobster grows slower than do warm water lobster. Cold waters keep Maine lobster meat tender and prevent the saltwater from saturating the flavor of the meat. This is the primary reason Maine lobster tends to have a sweet flavor. Approx. Weights range from chicks to 3 to 4 Lbs. Available year round.
