Berried Female Lobster

Veronika Brzeski Latest News

It is illegal to keep a berried female.

Unlike the roe, or red eggs inside a cooked lobster, these black eggs glued to the outside of the tail are fertilized. After 9 to 12 months of carrying them on the swimmerets, the eggs will hatch into tiny lobster larvae that float on the surface of the ocean for 6 to 8 weeks.
