Spiny lobsters occur from North Carolina south to Brazil including Bermuda, the Gulf of Mexico, West Indies and Caribbean. The northernmost extent of the range is North Carolina (Williams 1984). Adults are most prevalent in nearshore and offshore waters, but are found throughout the Indian River Lagoon in areas where there is ample shelter. Juveniles commonly occur in seagrasses, mangrove creeks and oyster reefs.
