The Lobster Season is officially open and fishermen wasted no time in getting in heading to their traps, shades and the reef to get those succulent lobsters so that we can all enjoy! Everybody is looking to cook some delicious lobster on the first day of the season; we have been deprived for too long. Although the weather wasn’t its best, as rough winds delayed fishermen a bit, the catch was still good!
Fishermen arrived close to midday with a hefty load of lobster which were of very good size. Lobster season in Belize runs from June 15th to midnight on the 14th of February, 2013. Tourists and locals will now be able to enjoy a variety of delicious lobster dishes cooked in all restaurants or at home instead of only the select few restaurants which are provided with licenses to serve lobster throughout the year.
Be sure to join in the fun at San Pedro’s Annual Lobster Fest (which kicks off today), Caye Caulker Lobster Fest and the Placencia Lobster Fest! Happy Lobster Fest to ALL!!
