Lobster Fishing

It is the commercial or recreational harvesting of marine Lobsters or Spiny lobsters, and is lucrative due to a huge market demand for lobster. Most commercial fishers use traps. Their use is considered advantageous to other collection techniques. Areas where it is common include southern California, New England, and the Canadian Maritimes.

Charter and party boats and dive boats are not considered recreational fishing vessels.

The beam trawl is designed to slide along the bottom rather than dredge.
