LIVE LANCELIN LOBSTERS
$31.00 inc. GST
Lancelin lobsters (aka crayfish) are considered a delicacy the world over and now you can get freshly caught live lobsters straight from the boat at near wholesale prices.
The state government introduced the Back of the Boat Lobster Sales Program (BOB) in mid September, 2020. This allows you to purchase lobsters just hours after they’ve been caught; they don’t come any fresher.
So, how do you order live lobsters?
- When fishers are able to supply lobsters you will be able to order them here between 3 and 1 days prior to collection. You simply select the number of lobsters you want (minimum 4)
- Select the collection date from available days on the calendar
- Add your contact and credit card details and click ORDER
- You’ll receive an email confirming the sale along with the collection details. You then need to be at the jetty or processing factory (they are 50ms apart) at the allotted time (normally around noon) to collect your live lobsters. You MUST collect them on the day as these are live animals and are covered by strict government regulations. Bring an esky or something similar to carry your catch home in.
IMPORTANT: Place orders from 3 days to 1 day prior to collection. All orders are NON-REFUNDABLE even if you fail to collect them. You MUST produce ID and your receipt (digital or printed) when you collect your lobsters. A 2.5% admin fee applies to all orders at checkout.
The Lancelin website does not sell lobsters! This site is a payment portal connecting buyers with fishers who have live lobsters for sale.
Why do I need to pre-order them and not just roll up at the jetty?
Fishermen only bring in what they have pre-sold.
Do fishermen fish every day?
They don’t, so we identify on the calendar the days that participating fishers are fishing. You can only order lobsters for those days.
Why can’t I order weeks in advance?
Fishermen often don’t know if they will be fishing until a few days prior.
Can I get cooked lobster?
Why does the price vary?
Fishers will typically expect to secure a price similar to what the Perth wholesalers offer and that fluctuates depending on supply and demand.
What size are these lobsters?
That will always be detailed on the order forms and will vary
If I’m late, can I collect from the fisherman’s house?
No. you need to be at the jetty or factory when the boats return from sea.
