When purchasing lobster, many people wonder if they should go with soft or hard shell Maine lobsters.
Hard vs. Soft Shell Lobsters
Hard shell lobsters overall, are the lobsters you want to arrive fresh to your door. They provide more meat per pound, and will be less messy while consuming due to there being minimal amounts of sea water inside of the shell. Soft shell lobsters provide LESS meat than a hard shell. Less meat allows more water inside of the lobster. This extra water however does make the meat a bit more tender, but the consumption of a soft shell lobster is still messier. 20 to 40 percent of soft shell lobster shipments arrive expired or deceased and can certainly damper the fun experience of opening a live box of lobsters. Firm shell lobsters of course fall between these two on the spectrum. Here at Maine Lobster Now, we ship hard shell lobsters because they are packed full of meat and are the ones that can survive the travel to ensure your shipment of fresh live Maine lobsters arrive in great condition.
