Internet greeting card sites give 13 June as Lobster Day, but don’t try to make sense of the date.
It’s not necessarily tied to any particular area where lobster fishing is open at the time.
Generally, in the northern hemisphere lobster fishing season is open in June, and the lobster are considered good then because they have grown into their new shells for the year, displacing the water that filled the space inside when the new, larger shells were just formed.
In Atlantic Canada, Lobster season begins sometime in May.
In Florida, lobster season tends to fall at the end of July or early August,
In any event, lobster is now available year round, even frozen whole in what are called “popsicle packs”, so wherever you are you can plan a lobster feast in June with confidence that you’ll at least be able to have the main guest attending, in some form.
