Seafood lovers cannot say that they truly have visited Maine until they experience the taste of a Maine Lobster. Maine lobster sometimes referred to as the King of Seafood, has a distinctive flavor that’s both mild and slightly sweet – it’s no wonder lobster is found on the menu of most Maine restaurants. Maine lobster, harvested from the icy clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, is so impressive; it can turn any event into a celebration. Maine’s coastal waters are some of the purest and most pristine in the world. The combination of rocky coast and strong wave action help keep this purification process in check, it’s one reason why lobsters from Maine are the sweetest.

Did you knowâ€¦. In colonial times, lobsters were considered â€śpoverty food.â€ť They were harvested from tidal pools and served to children, to prisoners, and to indentured servants, who exchanged their passage to America for seven years of service to their sponsors. In Massachusetts, some of the servants finally rebelled. They had it put into their contracts that they would not be forced to eat lobster more than three times a week!
Lobsters can go weeks to months without a meal, living off of and melting away their body fat and protein. This leads to a loss of flavor in lobsters that are not fresh out of the ocean. An adult female lobster will produce approximately 10,000 eggs when it is fertile. Each egg is the size of the head of a pin. As they grow, the eggs are held under the mother’s tail with a special glue-like substance. The female will carry her eggs for almost a year. Then the eggs are released as larvae. It has been estimated that less than 1% of the eggs will survive to grow into an adult.
Are lobsters good for me? You Bet! Lobsters arenâ€™t just good â€“ Theyâ€™re good for you. Maine Lobster has less cholesterol, calories, and saturated fats than both chicken and turkey! Lobster packs a lot of protein â€“ 18.8 grams per 3 1/2-ounce serving â€“ and not much fat â€“ less than 1 gram. A serving has 90 calories, 95 mg. of cholesterol, 253 mg. of sodium, and .2 grams of omega-3 fatty acid. Besides the greenish-brown colored lobsters, there are also rare blue, yellow, red, and white ones. Except for the white ones, they all turn red when cooked.
Until the early 1800’s, Maine lobster harvesting was done by gathering them by hand along the shoreline. Lobstering as a trap fishery came into existence in Maine around 1850. Today Maine is the largest lobster producing state in the nation. Though the number of lobstermen has increased dramatically, the amount of lobsters caught has remained relatively steady.
Lobsters grow by molting. This is the process in which they struggle out of their old shells while simultaneously absorbing water which expands their body size. This molting, or shell-shedding, occurs about 25 times in the first 5-7 years of life. Following this cycle, the lobster will weigh approximately one pound and reach the minimum legal size. A lobster at minimum legal size may then only molt once per year and increase about 15% in length and 40% in weight. No one has yet found a way to determine the exact age of a lobster. However, based on scientific knowledge of body size at age, the maximum age attained may approach 100 years. They can grow to be 3 feet or more in overall body length.
