The Langoustine, also called the Norway Lobster and Scampi, is native to muddy sedimentary sand/clay beds of the northeastern Atlantic Ocean, from Iceland and northern Norway to Portugal, including isolated areas of the Adriatic Sea, among others, in the northern Mediterranean. It is a thin, gangly, orange-red lobster with long, narrow, spiny front limbs with asymmetrical claws and grows to some 20cm long. It builds a burrow in the clay-sand or mud-silt where it spends most of its life, leaving briefly only to forage or breed.
