Spiny Lobster

Introduction

Spiny lobsters are delicious and make for a great meal. They’re found in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, and can be caught by scuba divers or from shore using lights to attract them during the summer months. Spiny lobsters have bodies that look like crayfish with ten legs, two claws and long antennae. There are no pinches on their claws because they’re used for camouflage when hiding under rocks in shallow water as opposed to fighting off predators or other male lobsters competing for mates.

Spiny lobsters turn bright green when cooked but can also be red or orange in color depending on where they live (i.e., tropical waters). These tasty crustaceans may also be called langouste or rock lobster depending on where they’re caught!

Spiny lobsters are a variety of lobster found in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. They are also known as langouste or rock lobster. Unlike their cousins, who live on the west coast of North America, spiny lobsters do not inhabit Pacific waters.

A spiny lobster may also be called a langouste or rock lobster.

Spiny lobsters may be caught by scuba divers, but the larger ones are too heavy for divers to lift.

The spiny lobster is a popular catch for scuba divers, and there are several ways to catch them.

  • The first method is to use hoop nets. These are common among scuba divers because they’re easy to set up and can be used anywhere in the water. Once you have your hoop net in place, it will attract any spiny lobsters that swim by.
  • Another way to find spiny lobsters is with lights under the sea floor at night. Lobster hunters use these lights to attract the invertebrates so that they’ll come closer and be easier for them to catch when they go out during the day or night with their hoop nets (or even just a stick).
  • Scuba diving equipment such as tanks and masks allow you underwater freedom while still being able to breathe easily through snorkels while swimming around looking for those tasty crustaceans!

In Florida, divers use hoop nets that are at least five feet long and placed on the ocean floor.

In Florida, divers use hoop nets that are at least five feet long and placed on the ocean floor. These nets resemble a hoop skirt and measure between 18 and 30 inches in diameter. The netting is made of braided nylon rope that makes it more durable than cotton or wool, which will break down in the saltwater environment. The hoop net is baited with a piece of fish or other food source, then pulled up by hand when a lobster passes through it on its way to feed.

The lobster will often get caught in one of the loops as it tries to escape from the trap—this happens because lobsters are typically faster than humans underwater, but also because they don’t have good eyesight compared with humans so they can’t see where they’re going well enough to avoid getting stuck!

Lobster fishing is popular in places like Maine where climate conditions allow for year-round harvesting; however there are some drawbacks: For example if you’re trying to catch them using traps (as opposed to just catching them by hand) then you need enough space along shoreline so that when tide comes back into place after dropping out during low tide there won’t be any issues with anything damaging your traps (like waves crashing into them).

During the summer months in South Florida, spiny lobsters may be caught from shore using lights to attract them.

Spiny lobsters can be found in the waters around South Florida, where they live in crevices in the coral reefs and rocky areas. If you are going to catch one of these spiny lobsters, you must know how to use a trap or net. You will also need to know what to do with your catch once you’ve caught it.

Once you have caught your spiny lobster, here are some steps on how to prepare it:

  • Take off the claws and place them on a clean cutting board that has been lightly dusted with flour (this makes it easier for the meat from dropping off). Then cut away at the joints until all four legs are separated from each other and set aside for later use as garnish or flavor enhancers when making soups or stews;
  • Next remove its tail by cutting through either side of its center point just above where its tail meets its body; if done correctly there should be no damage done during this process; now take off everything below this point including legs without damaging any parts of those either; set aside all pieces together in large bowl filled halfway full with cold water mixed with salt until finished processing them later

Spiny lobsters have bodies that look like crayfish with ten legs, two claws, and long antennae.

The spiny lobster’s body is shaped like a crayfish, with ten legs and two claws. The antennae are long, but they are not as long as those of the lobsters we eat. It looks like a lobster, but its tail is flatter than a lobster’s; it also has spines like a porcupine or hedgehog!

There are no pinches on the claws of a spiny lobster.

Spiny lobsters have two claws, but no pinches.

Spiny lobsters have two claws, and they are different from other types of lobster in that their second claw is much smaller than the first one. The spiny lobster’s tail (or carapace) has spikes sticking out all over it to protect it from predators like fish or octopuses.

Spiny lobsters are typically bright red or orange in color and turn bright green when cooked.

Spiny lobsters are typically bright red or orange in color and turn bright green when cooked. The spiny lobster’s scientific name is Panulirus interruptus, which means “interrupted breadfruit eater.” This name comes from the fact that it was once thought to eat breadfruit.

Spiny lobsters are not green in color like you might think! They are actually red or orange in color, but they turn bright green when cooked!

Spiny lobsters are also known as langouste or rock lobster.

The spiny lobster is also known as the langouste or rock lobster. In English, langouste is from the French langouste, which means crayfish. The word also refers to a type of lobster in France, although it’s not commonly used for that purpose anymore.

In English-speaking countries—including Australia and New Zealand—spiny lobsters are called rock lobsters and can be distinguished from true lobsters by their spiny antennae (the antennae of true lobsters are soft).
