How far do lobsters travel?
lobsters tend to stay in one place, seldom moving
more than a mile or so, but deepwater lobsters farther
out on the Continental Shelf follow a seasonal migratory pattern
shoreward in summer, returning to the Shelf again in the autumn.
The record travel so far is 225 miles covered by a lobster
tagged off the Continental Shelf and recovered at Port Jefferson,
Long Island, New York.
