Sand Lobster


These meaty seafood delicacies are known as Slipper Lobster, Flathead Lobster, Crayfish in English. In Kerala (Malayalam), called as Manal Laabster; in Hindi- as Jeenga Machilli.


 These lobsters are mostly found in the North-West Coast of India and warmer temperate waters, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. But today, with the rising demand, they are cultivated in huge fish farms as they breed well compared to prawns and shrimps. They linger at the bottom of shallow water, and oceans in search of prey.
