Due to over-fishing and a major decrease in numbers, the ban was adopted back in 2010 in order to preserve these species. The March 1st through June 30th is the time that lobsters located in the Caribbean and Central America are reproducing, so the ban was purposely put in place during these 4 months to respect the crustaceans’ breeding season. There is also the thought that, in […]
