Do You Know Lobster?

Buoys that mark lobster traps are all of uniform size and colour.

False – Buoys Are Various Colours

Each fisher chooses a unique paint colour combination for the bouys that mark their traps. This way the fishers can easily identify their own traps if other fishers are active in the area. The unique colours also aid in enforcement of the lobster industry.
