Lobster season closed for Central America and Dominican Republic

Posted: Tuesday, March 2, 2021. 1:59 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Belize typically closes “lobster season” on February 15, but this year joins its regional counterparts in a closed season for all of Central America and the Dominican Republic, says The Tico Times.

The regional closure of activities related to spiny lobster covers the Caribbean coastline of Central America from Belize to Panama, except for El Salvador which will assist by banning lobster sales, according to the Organization of the Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector of the Central American Isthmus (OSPESCA).

The closure runs from March 1, to June 30, and prohibits capture, processing, storage, transport, sale or export of lobster to “protect the period of greatest reproduction” of the species to guarantee its future availability.

Lobster is one of the most coveted species on the market, where it reaches prices of up to more than US$20 per kilo.

With the regulations, which have been applied since 2010, lobster exports have recovered with an average of 4,989 tons, higher than the 3,423 tons reached in 2009.
