World History

Saturday, February 12, 1977. :   The largest lobster on record is caught: it weighs nearly 20.2kg and is around a metre long.

     A lobster is edible marine crustacean which has stalked eyes, long antennae, and five pairs of legs, the first pair of which is modified into large pincers. The average adult lobster weighs between 800 grams and 1.4 kilograms. Lobsters grow throughout their lives, however, and are long-lived, so particularly large specimens have been caught. The largest lobster on record to date was caught on 12 February 1977 in Nova Scotia, Canada, and weighed 20.14 kg, making it the world's heaviest known crustacean. Its length was estimated to be between 90cm and 120cm. It was estimated to have possibly been one hundred years old.
