This Warm Water lobster it is harvested in the  bright blue waters of the Western Central Atlantic Ocean - the Caribbean and the Bahamas. The taste and texture of the Caribbean lobster tail does not compare to that of the North Atlantic (Maine) lobster tail because the meat isn't as tender and the flavor isn't as full and rich. When cooked perfectly, the Caribbean Tail is light, slightly sweet, and subtle. You can almost taste the fresh Caribbean Sea air in this lobster, and its taste, when combined with beans and rice, can be highly nostalgic if you've ever spent time in this part of the world.
