The hard-shelled lobster…
The seasons for harvesting lobster in Canada are staggered to protect the vulnerable summer moults. Seafood connoisseurs often refer to the hard-shelled Canadian Atlantic Lobster as the "King of Seafood". Atlantic Lobster is not only delicious, it is highly versatile and one of the most nutritious sources of protein you can find. Canadian Atlantic Lobster is known by many names including: Atlantic Lobster, American Lobster, Canadian Reds, Northern Lobster and Maine Lobster but no matter what you call it, once you’ve tasted our lobster you will know why it is King.
Hard shelled versus soft shelled.
Since the Atlantic Lobster must moult (shed its shell) in order to grow, it will display a thinner softer shell after it has molted. In Canada, the lobster season is staggered around the summer moulting period and most Canadian Atlantic Lobster are harvested hard-shelled. Many consumers prefer hard-shell lobsters over soft-shell lobsters because of several reasons. Hard-shell lobster contains fifty percent more meat than the same size soft-shell lobster. Hard-shell meat is firmer, while soft-shell meat is softer and tends to have more water. Furthermore, hard-shell lobsters ship better than soft-shell lobsters because they are less likely to crack en route. Cracking a hard-shell Atlantic lobster takes some effort, but the results are worth it!
