Larger lobsters are more mobile than smaller lobsters. The adult lobsters inhabit deeper waters but return in summer to shallow warmer waters. This is when the jumbo lobsters are easiest to catch, but jumbos are also available year round.
The most important thing when ordering jumbo lobster is to make sure it is fresh. Lobsters that sit in tanks for days at a time will begin to lose weight as the claw meat shrinks. We sell only select grade, fresh from the ocean jumbo lobster. This means they will taste as succulent when you receive them as they would if you were ordering from a restaurant in Boston. Order jumbo lobster today by 2:30 p.m. EST and feast tomorrow.
Note: Industry standard practice is that live lobster are sold "wet weight." This is the weight of the lobster when it is taken from the tank and weighed. Lobsters may lose up 10% of wet weight during shipping.
