Lobster Season Closed at Midnight

Providenciales, 31 March 2015 – There will be no spiny lobster on the menu for Easter; this is the norm but a reminder from the Department of Maritime affairs that Lobster Season as of midnight March 31st, 2015 is officially done. For the past few years there have been changes in opening and closing dates in an effort to preserve lobster stocks… the 2015 Season opened with huge catches, but bad weather hampered hauls during February and March; it caused government to give fisherman a two week extension. The law applies not only to fisherman though, restaurants, hotels even home kitchens will find themselves breaking the law for selling, serving or stocking lobster. The fine is $5,000 with jail time of six months.
