With a large coastal area of 3,260 km, and a 1 million km² exclusive economic zone, Vietnam has the potential for a large mariculture. One of the most valuable coastal aquaculture activities is raising spiny lobster species, especially the ornate lobster, Panulirus ornatus, a highly valued species in the seafood industry, especially in Asia, Europe, and America. Spiny lobster farming in sea cages was first developed in Khánh Hòa Province of Vietnam in 1992 and has since expanded to 35,000 lobster cages in just over a decade and has since become a USD $100 million industry.
Rock Lobsters are neutral creatures found in Caves. They eat all minerals except for Marble. In Vietnam, more than 1 500 tons of P. ornatus are farmed each year in sea cages. With a lot of advantages, rock lobsters are chosen to raise in Cam Ranh & Van Ninh Khanh Hoa Province.
Spiny lobster farming is a big industry in Vietnam, with the main markets in China and Taiwan, Vietnam competes in a market that is dominated by producers such as Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia, who all together export up to 10,000 t annually, compared with the 1,500 produced by Vietnam farms. However, farming lobsters allows for year-round supply and export that meets the high demand during off season, and thus Vietnam can sell at a higher market price.
Rock lobsters are mostly sold as frozen or thawed tails, as, unlike Maine lobsters, they have no claws, so the only meat found in rock lobsters is in the tail.

Rock lobster can be cooked in a variety of ways — steamed, boiled, grilled, or broiled — but the key to a tasty lobster dish is to choose a high-quality rock lobster tail and to not overcook it. Cook rock lobster by broiling, roasting or grilling, as well as boiling and steaming.
Whole rock lobsters take best to boiling or steaming, while cut lobster cooks best with high-heat methods, such as broiling and grilling; the exposed flesh can char and crisp slightly, highlighting the natural sweetness of lobster meat. When cooking cut rock lobster over high heat, brush with olive oil or clarified butter before and during cooking to ensure that the meat does not dry out.
If steaming or boiling, season prior to cooking to gently flavor your rock lobster. For optimal results, never cook rock lobster tails from frozen, as the meat will cook unevenly, leading to low-quality lobster meat.Show Less
