Qestions, Answers, and Facts about Maine Lobsters

How old do lobsters live to? That is a hard question but some say they can possibly live for 30 to 40 years or more. Read more in this news article published November 30, 2012 in The Huffington Post, "Lobster Age Shown by Counting Its Rings Like a Tree, Study Reveals".

How big can lobsters get? Some lobsters get quite large. The largest lobster ever caught in Maine waters was the size of a three year old child and weighed 27 pounds. See "Maine's biggest lobster returned to Atlantic Ocean", Reuters, February 24, 2012.

How much lobster is caught in Maine waters? In 2011 a record was set for the highest lobster catch in one year.  Lobstermen in Maine caught more than 100 million pounds of lobster. 3. Lobster accounts for about 70 percent of the value of Maine seafood harvest.

How are live lobsters shipped from Maine to market? If the destination is close (Boston, New York, or elsewhere in New England) the lobsters go by truck. But to go a long distance, because of the short life lobsters have when out of water, lobsters are shipped by high priority air cargo. There are improvements being made to allowing shipping lobsters to distant locations via ground transport incorporating advanced holding tank designs. 1.
