The Caribbean Spiny Lobster
The Caribbean Spiny Lobster (Panulirus argus) is the primary lobster caught in Belize. When the Spiny Lobster hatches, it faces an uphill battle.  Of the 10,000 eggs that a female might release, only about one percent will survive past the first four weeks of life. They begin life as a free-swimming, microscopic phyllosoma larvae.
