Lobster was formerly considered a poor man's dinner, according to Seafood University.
In colonial New England, lobsters were so numerous that regularly washed ashore, making them simple to capture.
Modern lobster fishing is difficult. The crustaceans develop slowly, consume a lot, and are disease-prone, according to Insider.
A lot of technology is used to raise and send lobsters alive across the nation.
Lobster's pricey reputation also plays a role. Because lobster is now a delicacy, one seller's price reduction might affect the whole business.
