That's a whole lotta lobster!
The town of Orleans, MA is buzzing after a 21 pound lobster was caught in Nauset Bay, in Cape Cod.
Elise Costa, manager of Cap'tn Elmers, has been charged with overseeing the leviathan as onlookers gaze upon the giant crustacean.
Costa says the following about the big catch:
I had its tail on my shoulder and I had each claw in one of my hands, and it was as long as my arms and as big as my torso. It’s giant.
Usually, for every four and a half pounds of live lobster, once you cook it and clean it, you get one pound of meat.
So 21 divided by four and a half, that would give you about five pounds of meat.
That could feed a family for DAYS!
Larger lobsters are becoming a rarity as areas are creating max gauges on catches.
Also, on a positive note, many fishermen like to release giant lobsters back into the ocean to keep these modern marvels alive!
