Invertebrates of Interest: California Spiny Lobster
California's coastal waters are home to a multitude of invertebrates (species lacking a bony skeleton). A small fraction of these, including California spiny lobster, are actually targeted by California's recreational and commercial fisheries. In the following links, visitors can learn more about spiny lobster identification, biology, habitat, geographic range, fishing methods, and more.
