The Maine Lobster industry is well into the 2018 peak season, when lobsters shed their shells and a brand new, softer shell emerges, according to the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative.

The group said that the result of this shell shedding is Maine New Shell Lobster, a sweeter, more delicate meat – known as Maine’s best kept secret.

Following the industry’s first-ever live broadcast, the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative (MLMC) brought Maine New Shell Lobster to Chicago, just ahead of the official National Lobster Day on Sept. 25.

While peak New Shell season runs through the fall and into early November, consumers can get Maine Lobster year-round through a variety of retail offerings, such as frozen lobster tails and pre-picked knuckle and claw meat.
