18-pound lobster joins New York Aquarium

UPI News Service, 08/19/2011 

Officials at the New York Aquarium said they have acquired a gargantuan 18-pound lobster from a seafood company worker who decided not to cook the crustacean.

Aquarium Director Jon Dohlin said the lobster, which is estimated to be 75 years old, went on display this week and has proven a hit with visitors, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

"He radiates a certain charisma," Dohlin said, "a crustacean charisma."

Jennifer Vargas, a bookkeeper for the New England Lobster Co. in San Francisco, said rescuing the lobster seemed like the right thing to do after it was caught off the coast of Canada a few weeks ago.

"This seemed like a (lousy) way to go," Vargas said. "A lot of the customers were interested in him -- the problem was they didn't have a pot big enough."
