There can be seasonal variations in the visual appearance of the langoustine during the spawning period. This occurs during the spring and summer months and is apparent by a darkening at the back of the head where an egg sac develops. Additionally eggs can be found attached to the belly. This in no way spoils the eating quality of the shellfish and visually the eggs change colour on cooking to orange.
