The Brazilian lobster fishery incorporates both small artisanal fishers as well as mid to large sized industrial boats. The fishery includes 3 known lobster species; 90% x Panulirus argus, 9% Panulirus laevicauda & 1% Panulirus echinatus.Brazilian lobsters are well regarded for being tender & sweet and often valued highest of all Caribbean Lobster origins when sold as raw tails in the US market.
100% of all Brazilian Lobsters exported by Wild Oceans are Wild Caught.
