Lobster Season Jamaica

Lobster breeding season is April 1-June 30. Here is the official word:

"The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries is advising members of the public that the lobster season will be closed from April 1 to June 30.

The ministry said spiny lobsters in storage between April 1 and 21 which have been declared to the Licensing Authority may be sold, exported or processed within this 21-day period.

However, after April 21, it will be illegal for anyone to have any species of spiny lobsters/spiny lobster parts or products in their possession. It will not matter whether the lobster is fresh, frozen or otherwise. Persons found in breach will be liable for prosecution.

Note, fishing for spiny lobsters during the closed season is illegal and in addition, no spiny lobsters are to be held alive during the closed season in any holding device. However, spiny lobsters unintentionally captured in fishing gear must be returned to sea immediately
