Also known as Dublin Bay Prawns or Norway Lobster, Langoustine are one of Scotland’s most profitable exports and one of the few sources of income for West Coast communities. Langoustine are caught by two different methods of fishing – Creeling and trawling. Creels caught prawns are kept alive and sold to the premium restaurant markets at home and abroad. Trawled prawns are caught in bulk and mainly sold for the frozen prawn tail or scampi market.
