Largest Lobster in 85 years Caught in the UK


UK diver Joe Pike recently took to the water in Devon, UK to go spearfishing.  Little did he know that during his dive he would snag the largest Lobster found in UK waters in 85 years!

Weighing in at 7.65kg / 16.87lb it certainly is a monster.  The world record for the largest lobster caught is 20.13kg / 44lb 6oz caught in 1977 off the coast of Nova Scotia.

Pike had this to say on YouTube:

“The lobster was out of water for a few hours before I took it to a special tank in the national marine aquarium. It was decided he is better protected at his grand old age. He is doing well, with an actual weight of 7.65Kgs.”

You can watch the video of the capture below:
