The beautifully marked Caribbean spiny lobster has long been a favorite Florida seafood
and is one of our most important fisheries. As a result, marine conservation laws have
been implemented to protect this valuable species from being overexploited.
This brochures discusses the Caribbean spiny lobster, also known as a crayfish, crawfish,
langosta, and Florida lobster. Topics include a description of the lobster's appearance, life
history, range and habitat, and management efforts.
