It's that simple... 10 lbs. of FIRM SHELL lobster picked up at Fisherman's Market.
What's the difference between hard shell, firm shell and soft shell?
- LOBSTERS NEVER STOP GROWING! As they grow, they require bigger shells to fit into, therefore throughout the seasons, lobsters begin to molt their shells for larger ones.
- Hard shell lobsters also have less water weight, while soft shell lobsters contain more water. The water is what helps to harden the shell over time.
- The color of a hard-shell lobster’s meat is also different than that a soft-shell lobster.
- It is pure preference, but some enjoy sweeter taste of the lobster, even though there is less actual meat in a firm or soft shell lobster. Typically, there is 20% to 28% meat from a hard shell lobster, but in a soft / firm shell lobster, there is only 15% to 20% meat.
- Firm and soft shell lobsters CANNOT BE SHIPPED OVERNIGHT and are only available for Curbside Pickup or walk-ins to our seafood market.

Excellent, very friendly staff
I have purchased your 10 pound firm shell lobsters 4, or 5 times now. Last time (two weeks ago) I received 2 soft shell lobsters. This past week, 3 of the five lobsters were soft shell. I was able to actually rip the shells open as opposed to cracking them open, again. I could also crumble the shells in my hand from the soft shelled lobsters.
As you can imagine, I received a lot less lobster from the soft shelled ones.
Your prices have increased substantially, although quality has not kept up with prices.
I just wanted to let you know...
Thank you for reading this, and hopefully consistently providing firm shelled lobsters from now on.
It was wonderful. I think we actually got more than 10 lbs. Three of us had steamed lobster one night, then lobster salad for 2 more meals, and froze some lobster casserole.
