This explains why the prices of lobsters are so high. the standard ‘chicken’ size lobsters are about 7 years old and too young to breed. And we catch 90% of them every year. These are probably 60-70 years old and do most of the breeding. If we tossed them back instead of eating them, we’d be doing the species a great service. I don’t know why Walmart sells these giants, they taste like shit. I think they should be freed.
