The blue, European or Breton lobster is an animal living on a rocky ground on almost all of the North Atlantic coast. We usually find them under rock or in holes where he can hide all day. He is moving barely and remains a lonely hunter. His size can reach 60 centimeters and weigh from 5 to 6kg.
The lobsters that we sell are mainly caught on the edges of the Channel Islands , from the Minquiers islands to the Ecrehou. A region crossed by the Gulf Stream with sandy grounded nature and the highest tides in Europe. A rocky area that provides suitable habitat and represents one of the highest french fishing ground. We capture them by using lobsters fishing pots on boats generally ranging from eight to twelve meters. The regulatory minimum size must reach 87mm (length of the carapace).
The lobster family : the European and the American lobster. The US/Canadian lobster that we find in large quantities on the French market remains cheapper and is much less popular than his cousin the European lobster with a firm chair, fine and delicate taste.
The Breton lobster should represent the European lobsters caught or landed in Britain but often the name is used as a general term to describe UK lobster or even lobster from the Normandy coast!
