Globalization has strongly affected seafood markets throughout the world. This is particularly true for the lobster fisheries of the Wider Caribbean region, which are the topic of this thesis. Commercial harvest of lobster in this region took off when international demand from the United States stimulated commercial lobster fisheries. No large-scale commercial lobster fishery existed prior to this time but the increasing demand and high unit price for lobster on the international market, combined with new technological possibilities, resulted in lobster fishery development throughout the region.
