Lobster season in Belize runs from June 15th 2014 to February 14, 2015. Lobster season is BIG in Belize; big enough that there are three different festivals at three different destinations in the country that celebrate the opening of the season.
There is more than just one species of lobster in Belize. We have the Caribbean Spiny lobster, the Spotted Spiny lobster and three different Slipper lobsters. The Caribbean Spiny lobster is by far the most important species because of its relative abundance and commercial importance. This lobster takes 3-5 years to mature and can reach a maximum length of two feet and can be found either snorkeling or diving in 3-130 feet deep. As with most insects, lobsters molt as they grow larger, as many as 25 times in the first five years. Lobsters never stop growing and it is said they can live up to 40 years!
At $20 for a pound of lobster tail in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, it is considered an expensive delicacy, but people do not mind splurging because it is so delicious.
