A lobster is a type of fishable crustacean that players can use as food. They are amongst the most popular foods in the game, especially in free-to-play, because they heal 12 Hitpoints each and can easily be caught in bulk.
Players can catch raw lobsters with a Fishing level of 40 or higher, granting 90 Fishing experience. Lobsters can be caught at any Cage/Harpoon fishing spot with a lobster pot. Lobsters can also be cooked with a Cooking level of 40 or higher, granting 120 Cooking experience. For the list of known burn levels, refer to the burn level article.
Lobsters can be caught at Catherby, Rellekka, Jatizso, west of the bank in Port Piscarilius, Karamja island near the banana plantation on Musa Point and in the Corsair Cove Resource Area (requires completion of Dragon Slayer I), which is the best place for free-to-play players due to Corsair Cove's nearby bank becoming accessible after completing Corsair's Curse. They can also be caught in the north-eastern corner of the Wilderness, but this is also not recommended. Members may also fish for lobsters in the Fishing Guild, which requires level 68 Fishing to enter. Catherby is the recommended place for players with Fishing level lower than 68 to catch lobsters.
Lobsters yield 2,430 experience points per inventory when fishing (including the space taken by a lobster pot).
