Lobster is widely perceived as a summer time cooking and eating treat. What many people dont realize is that this favorite seafood crustacean is harvested year round in Maine. This means you dont have to be relaxing barefoot by the beach to enjoy it, eat, cook and enjoy this delicious seafood treat year round.
