Some Interesting Facts About Spiny Lobsters
Spiny lobsters have two large antennae. They are used for fighting and defense, and two smaller antennules, which are sensory organs that can detect chemicals and movement in the water.
Spiny lobsters reproduce in summer. Females carry bright orange eggs on the underside of the tail.
Once hatched, the larvae travel long distances as plankton in currents before settling in shallow water nursery habitats.
Puerulus is the term used to describe the free-swimming phase that moves out of the plankton and into benthic habitats.
As spiny lobsters mature, they migrate from the inshore nursery habitats to offshore reefs.
At LAGOSTA we produce high premium quality spiny lobsters. We farm the European spiny lobster in an organic and sustainable manner, and recycle its associated by products. We also put great care into making sure this species’ population will survive sustainably in the wild.
Adding value to what is normally a by-product through the extraction of bioactive compounds from spiny lobster shells will provide significant commercial benefits to the company in the years to come. At LAGOSTA we recycle waste into wealth!
