Do you think the most famous lobster is from Boston? In fact, the leading and largest lobster producing area in the United States is Maine. According to the "2017 U.S. Fisheries Report" issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in December 2018, the production value of lobster is the third most valuable fishery in the United States after salmon and crab. The catch is about 130 million banner design pounds, 80% of which comes from Maine! With such a large amount of fishing, how can Maine maintain the sustainable development of the marine ecology? Why are lobsters from the United States called Boston lobsters? First of all, when it comes to lobsters in the United States, we always have two large clawed "Boston lobsters" in our minds. The species of this lobster is "Homarus americanus", and the largest lobster in the United States is located in the northeastern United States. Not all of the "Maine" of the Ministry came from Boston. Boston also has lobster, but production is limited. But obviously more than 80% of the lobsters in the United States come from Maine, so why do people always only know that they are called Boston lobsters? photo-23025 Photo Credit: Food Power Generally, the Boston lobster we eat in the market is "Homarus americanus", which is characterized by two large claws. In fact, this is because most of the lobsters caught in Maine are shipped through Boston's Logan International Airport to all over the world, so most people refer to "Maine lobster" as "Boston lobster".
