The finest of the spiny lobsters are the Jasus species in the colder waters on the lower fringes of all of the Southern Hemisphere continents.

For some years the unrivalled choice of spiny lobster for European chefs and retailers has been the Jasus tristani from Tristan Island. A remarkable story of the commitment to both quality, and protecting their lobster stocks, by the community on the most remote inhabited island in the world Tristan da Cunha.

The Tristani Lobsters are humanely stunned, rapid frozen on Tristan Island, and shipped by sea freight, avoiding both the animal cruelty and carbon footprint associated with the airfreighting of live lobsters from all other lobster origins in the world.
