According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Europe Lobster Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028," the Europe lobster market reached a volume of 61.2 Kilo Tons in 2022. Lobsters are marine crustaceans known for their distinct appearance and culinary value. Typically, lobsters are recognized by their long bodies, hard exoskeleton, and large claws, although claw sizes can significantly differ between species. Characteristic features of lobsters include a pair of large claws, the first of which is typically larger and used for crushing prey, while the second is smaller and sharper, used for cutting. They also have a muscular tail and five pairs of legs. Lobsters have compound eyes, giving them a broad field of vision, and long antennae, which they use for sensing their environment. In terms of size, lobsters can vary greatly, with some species reaching lengths of over 3 feet. They are usually a mottled brown or greenish color, but they can come in a range of colors depending on the species. When cooked, lobsters turn a distinctive bright red. One remarkable feature of lobsters is their longevity. Some lobsters can live up to 70 years or more, making them one of the longest-living animals on the planet. Lobsters are also known for their unique molting process, during which they shed their old shell and grow a new one as they increase in size. From a culinary perspective, lobsters are considered a delicacy and are a significant part of seafood cuisine worldwide, especially in coastal areas where they are often caught fresh. Their sweet, rich meat is found in the tail, claws, and body.
