Lobster News

You may remember that last August, Steve and I did a whirlwind tour of Cornwall, and along the way we stopped at the National Lobster Hatchery and adopted a couple of lobsters (as you do).

I was just looking at their website and discovered that our lobsters (Bob and Arthur), which were raised in captivity along with hundreds of others, were released by a scuba diver back into the wild in October last year – aw!

Did you know: Lobsters can live to be one hundred years old, and grow up to two metres in length (if they’re not eaten first that is).

  1. Excellent, do they GPS tag it so you can meet it when it’s older?

    Cor, I wouldn’t want to come face to face with a 2m long lobster, although it would make a good feast.

  2. No GPS tagging 🙁 But I guess it stops you being upset when you find out it’s later been caught by a lobster-catcher for someone’s dinner.

    A 2 metre lobster would be be pretty scary wouldn’t it?

    “Er, nice lobster, be a good boy now… ”
