Rocky, Maine’s biggest-ever lobster, returns to the ocean The biggest lobster ever caught in Maine, a 27-pounder (12 kilogram) nicknamed “Rocky” with claws tough enough to snap a man’s arm, was released back into the ocean on Thursday after being trapped in a shrimp net last week, marine officials said.
The one-metre male crustacean was freed in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, said Elaine Jones, education director for the state’s Department of Marine Resources.
“All the weight is in the claws,” Ms. Jones said. “It would break your arm.” (Photo: Maine Department of Marine Resources/Reuters)
Rare blue lobster caught in P.E.I. Prince Edward Island fisherman Blair Doucette has seen many different colours of lobsters — bright red, orange, yellow-red — in his 35-year career, but none like the rare blue lobster he caught on Wednesday. The extremely uncommon pigment is the outcome of a genetic disorder. (Photo: Karen George)
