Everyone loves lobster. A little butter, a little candlelight, yum!

Lobsters were once considered the poor man's chicken.
In Colonial times, it was fed to pigs and goats and only eaten by paupers.
Lobsters aren't red. They turn red when cooked, but in nature they can be green or yellow or even bright blue.
Lobster fishermen throw back lobsters that are too small and lobsters that are too big. The small ones need to grow, while the large ones add vigor to the gene pool.

In Maine, a lobster's body must be at least 3 1/4 inches to keep, and can't be over 5 inches.
When lobsters mate, the eggs aren't fertilized right away. The female carries the male's sperm and chooses when to fertilize her eggs.
Lobsters shed their shells, or molt.

A female lobster can only mate just after she has molted.
Lobsters can swim forward and backward. When they're alarmed, they scoot away in reverse by rapidly curling and uncurling their tails.
Because its nervous system is similar to that of grasshoppers and ants, lobsters are sometimes called "bugs."
When food is scarce, lobsters can turn cannibal and dine on smaller lobsters.

I'm not sure how much of that is true. Lobsters are indeed red prior to cooking. The large ones are very sought after by some seafood restaurants...."can't be over 5 inches" - patently false.

100 years ago they were also used to fertilize lawns and gardens.

As I was just saying about the internet.......

Carapace Size Limit: Minimum (in some cases maximum) lobster carapace size is established for each area based on the condition of the fishery.

I have been wondering why we would call vbloggers "stars".

Are you 14 years old? I have sold, set-up, and serviced lobster tanks for 24 years. Along with many other species of course.

Indeed, I have seen tens of thousands of "Maine" lobsters and have yet to see one that is not red.

Your comment is so inane that you are going straight to ignore. Kind of like seeing someone taking a noon dump on Broadway....we know enough of the story at that.

You're either color blind or hard headed, I'm guessing the latter.

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

I just learned today that most "Maine" lobsters come from Canada. Could explain the color shift...

Yeah, me too. Well, I don't call them stars, but the OP some others here do. They are sailors looking for a way to take money from strangers. That's all.

As for Maine lobsters, they are basically brown, and dark brown. Occasionally with some slight red tinges, here and there. But hey, and like with jobless YouTube home-movie sailors, how would I know anything about Maine lobsters? Maybe it's because I just see them pulled out of the ocean every morning, year after year (outdoor photos taken from the deck of my house in Port Clyde, Maine). When the lobster boat arrives back at port, ask the lobsterman to show you a blue or red lobster. He'll start laughing.

By the way, boil a lobster. After it turns red, eat it. They're yummy. Take my word for it.

You may call them brown without argument. They are a reddish brown I think. For 24 years all of the local restaurateurs that I recall have referred to them as red.

It is entirely possible that the color shifts during dry shipping. Going to a mile high environment may have an impact.

This is about the most pointless net argument ever.

Martin Moe, an acquaintance, was once commissioned by the Florida governor to write on the Spiny "Florida" lobster. I never did find a book on the Maine lobster...when I was looking.

FWIW: a search for red lobsters gave 65 million results. Brown lobster gave almost 63 million results. A worthless search to be sure.

From lobsteranywhere.com: "You’ll also see darker colored lobsters are found in the deeper waters, while the lighter colored lobsters are closer to shore. The sun rays of the sun will lighten the lobster’s shell."
