Did you know?
Lobsters are marine crustaceans that are heavily utilized as a food source for humans. Lobsters have a complex life cycle starting as eggs, followed by free floating at the surface as larvae and finally settling on the bottom of the ocean as juveniles. It takes many molts and 5-7 years to grow to harvestable size. At one time lobsters were so plentiful that they were gathered from the shoreline as a food source for farm animals, now they are considered a delicacy. Unfortunately, rising ocean temperatures threaten the ability of the lobster larvae to survive and could negatively impact their population in the future.
