St Andrews Bay Lobsters are European Lobsters; the ones around here tend to be smaller, sweeter and bluer than those found in England or on the West Coast of Scotland. They are a little known treasure highly prized by professional Chefs.
The secret to their wonderful flavor and texture is their environment; we have cold water here on the East Coast compared to the West as we don't have warm water currents keeping the temperature up. So our lobsters grow slowly taking around 7 years to reach legal size.
We also have very clean water; round here our major "industries" are Golf, Tourism, Farming and the University. This clean environment gives clean lobsters.
