There seems to be a theory in the "Ca fish and Wildlife" community that our local lobster are born and bred at Sacramento reef in Baja Ca. (about 70mi. south San Quintin). I was told at a former "Fish and Game" Meeting by Sonke that the reason San Clemente Island is regarded as the "land of the shorts" is because of the northern migration of lobster from Sac reef. His point being that the lobster that land at San Clemente haven't had enough time to grow to maturity. That seems to follow the research presented in "The Secret Life of Lobster", a well researched volume on New England lobster. Whether or not this is true is highly subjective from my experience. It would be interesting to have someone from Fish and Wildlife respond with some form of research that would support that theory.
