    have never seen fresh lobsters swimming in the tanks at any of the grocery stores.
    if they did have them, i bet they would be over $20 apiece.

    Think of the 'travel route' a Maine lobster would have to take to get here.
    In the restaurants they are expensive and not aware of any place to
    find them. There are the 'rock lobsters' the ones with small claws and
    big tails, but they are even hard to find.

    The Ren pier used to have a restaurant with lobster tanks (across from the Cafe)
    but they are out of business.

    Sadly, Aruba is not a lobster island. But great local fish - including Mahi Mahi,
    grouper, Wahoo and barracuda (yes - and it's wonderful).

    I know that Ruth's Chris had lobster tails on their menu last time
    I was there for $125 USD!! A little too pricey for my taste

    Should Clarify

    Question - Not that I have an answer for you but you should clarify whether you are looking for Caribbean or Maine Lobsters. Huge difference (claws, taste).

    If you're interested in Maine....you might be best off purchasing state side (they pack for air travel, and they're good for 24 hours).

    Living in New England, lobster country, I leave my lobster craving at home and enjoy the local seafood.

    Where to Buy Fresh Fish?

    Is there a dock or restaurant where you can buy fish to cook yourself? Preferably close to Playa Linda.
    Thanks

    there is also a great selection at LINGS and SUPERFOOD
    we bought some fresh grouper with marinade and we put it in aluminum foil and baked it.
    i would consider checking LINGS or SUPERFOOD if you cannot find what you want at the docks.

    I know this is an old thread just hoping anyone has new or updated information.

    I'm looking into buying fresh fish a few nights. I know Zeerover has shrimp and what the catch of the day is, I know they are still there. Are the Barcadera dock near Renaissance and the Hadicurari pier near Marriott/Holiday Inn still in existence? If so any idea of time the boats come in and what days. I'm also looking for Caribbean lobster to grill. Don't mind using Ling & Sons, but would much rather have fresh from the locals. Thanks all

    Don Carlo's "tanked" (it is not just closed, it's gone....demolished).
