Lobster is on my mind. I'm indulging in my first clambake this weekend to kick off the summer season, but before I crack the claws, I thought a brief moment dedicated to the lobster was in order.
Some of us might need a refresher on how Maine's lobstermen catch these little ocean bugs. Check out the video to the right from the Ready brothers at Catch a Piece of Maine
For more lobster lore:
- Check out the Gulf of Maine Aquarium site devoted to the crustacean.
- The Secret Life of Lobsters author Trevor Corson has a blog mostly devoted to the creatures.
- One of the best links from Corson's site is this crazy slide show by Captain Joe of Gloucester, MA, of mutant lobsters and crabs.
- The PPH is reporting today about a company that processes thousands of pounds of lobsters by pushing a button.
