The Southern Rock Lobster (known locally as crayfish), Jasus edwardsii, is found only in the remote oceans of New Zealand and Southern Australia. It’s in these pristine marine ecosystems that the lobsters grow slowly with a sweet and delicate flesh. They cannot be farmed: our legendary fishermen voyage rough seas to find the remote hiding spots of the wild lobsters, and return with perfect Wild Legends.
Lobster “potting” is low impact and sustainably managed by regulation. The map shows Wild Legend collection points.

Wild caught refers to lobsters or other seafood that is caught in their natural habitat, as opposed to those that are raised in captivity or on a farm. Our lobsters are caught by fishermen who use lobster pots to catch them. Wild caught lobsters are highly prized for their taste and texture, and are often considered to be of highest quality. This is because wild caught lobsters are able to feed on a natural diet and live in their natural environment, which can result in a more flavorful and healthier lobster.
