The story of the Tahoe Lobster Company begins with the first  written introduction of signal crayfish in 1895: 19 males and 31 females  in Marlette Lake. Since Marlette feeds into Lake Tahoe, the crayfish  had no problem getting well established in both Nevada lakes.

During this time the lumber and mining industries were going strong  and an additional, inexpensive food source was needed. Popular belief  was that the native Lahontan Cutthroat Trout—a natural predator of the  crayfish—would thrive, and populations would grow to meet the demands of  the basin for a food source. So, additional stocking of crayfish  occured in 1915 and throughout the ’20s. The crayfish prospered, and the  plan was working. But there was a problem.

Due  to heavy pressure from commercial fishing, the trout population was hit  hard, and by the end of the 1930s native Lahontan cutthroat in Lake Tahoe were extinct. Without a predator, the crayfish population soared.  Everyone seemed to forget about the small lobster-like crustacean, and  no one questioned the long-term effect of introducing such an invasive  species.

Dedicated to make a difference.​​Tahoe Lobster Company was established in 2010. It took 2 years of research to get from concept to where we are today. We have been down the path of law change, establishing guidelines and protocol for the Lake Tahoe crawfish harvest and with perseverance and dedication we have what it takes to make a difference. Our business and reputation continues to grow at unbelievable rates and has exceeded our expectations. Customer satisfaction is top priority and knowing our future lies within the hands of our community has given us the drive to make Tahoe Lobster Company a name you won’t forget. The product we harvest from the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe is bringing the Louisiana culture right to our backyard and leading the way to a more clear and beautiful Lake Tahoe for generations to enjoy!
