Larry the Lobster gets to live another day

Wikimedia/Andy Mitchell

Larry the 110-year-old lobster weighed 15 pounds and was destined for the plate in a Florida restaurant, but now he gets to live.

Larry the 110-year-old lobster will get to live for another day after being rescued this week from a Florida restaurant by kind-hearted animal advocates and sent to live in an aquarium.

According to Local 10 News, the 15-pound lobster was set for a plate at the Tin Fish restaurant in Florida, where owner Joe Melluso estimated that the creature was about 110 years old. But after he wrote about the lobster on Facebook, some would-be rescuers took up a collection to buy Larry and spare his life instead of eating him.

"When there was a group that wanted to save him, I was disappointed in myself for not having that feeling myself," Melluso said.

The rescuers took up a collection among friends and local businesses and got together $300 to buy Larry from Melluso. Then they made arrangements and paid for Larry to be mailed to the Maine State Aquarium.

The Maine State Aquarium already has a 17-pound lobster on display, so Larry would not be the big man at the aquarium, if the facility decides to keep him and add him to the display. After checking on Larry’s health, the aquarium says it will decide if they want to keep Larry or release him back into the ocean, where he will hopefully avoid other lobster traps in the future.

It’s lobster season: a good time of year for lovers of delicate lobster meat-filled rolls and a bad time of year for fan-tailed crustaceans. However, at least one lucky clawed creature will not meet its end in an Annie Hall-esque pot of boiling water. The Associated Press reports that concerned citizens this week coordinated the complicated rescue of one massive 15-pound, decades old lobster from Sunrise, Florida’s Tin Fish restaurant.

According to the Portland Press Herald, chef/owner Joe Melluso plucked the lobster (who’s since been dubbed "Larry") from a Maine lobster tank on Monday morning. Recognizing that the lobster was far larger than the average, Melluso decided to contact a TV station for a little press before turning Larry into lobster salad.

During the broadcast the chef estimated, based on an unproven method for calculating a lobster’s age, that the massive crustacean was around 110 years old . Still, Larry’s brief moment in the spotlight turned heads and Melluso soon received a call from an animal rescue group iRescue, offering to help save the lobster from the dinner plate. According to the Miami Herald , representatives purchased Larry for $300 and arranged to have him shipped to the Maine State Aquarium wrapped in a frozen, salt water-soaked towel.

While this might seem to be a happy end for Larry, some still aren’t satisfied with the hefty lobster living out his days in captivity. PETA has since issued a release urging the aquarium to free the lobster back to the ocean:

Lobsters, like dolphins and many other animals, use complicated signals to explore their surroundings and establish social relationships. They also take long-distance seasonal journeys, traversing 100 miles or more each year. Scientists have determined that lobsters, like all animals, can feel pain, and when kept in tanks, they suffer from the stress associated with confinement.

The animal rights organization cites one other instance in 2012 when the aquarium freed another large lobster — 27-pound Rocky — into the murky waters from whence it came. Rocky and and Larry aren’t the only lobsters who’ve received a pardon from the plate. Last July, a Long Island-area seafood restaurant donated an impressive 23-pound lobster to the local aquarium.
