Scuba Explorers's curator insight, January 14, 2014 12:29 PM

Every dive location has it's own set of laws for lobster hunting.  I don't know of any place that will allow you to  hunt while scuba diving; it's an unfair advantage for the lobsters.  Lobsters may only be taken (caught) by hand while snorkeling (skin diving).  Check the local rules/regs/law for lobster season.  The will list: minimum size, quota and fines.  You don't want to mess up- the fines can be hefty!

Happy lobstering!
