We had some large lobsters for a family party. We ordered 2 pounders ahead, but they forgot to "pull" them, and they were sold out when we got there to pick them up, so they sold us some 4 pounders at a good price. My brother, recently returned from a Maine vacation, said that they must be "farmed" because ones that size (or too small) get thrown back. Farmed lobsters can be sold at any size, he says. I said that maybe they are Canadian lobsters. He said, "maybe but probably not". Do they farm lobster like salmon or oysters now? PS The big lobsters are good, and you do get more meat per pound. They are hard to open. We had to use a hammer.
