In this June 20, 2014, file photo, lobsters are processed at the Sea Hag Seafood plant in St. George, Maine. More and more American and Canadian-caught lobsters have been turning up at fancy restaurants in China, marketed as “Boston lobster”, say Maine-based processors. One processing firm owner says it's now the biggest live lobster important day of the year after Christmas in Europe. (Photo by Robert F. Bukaty/AP Photo)

Isabel Schmalenbach, an environmental scientist with the Helgoland Biological Institute (Biologische Anstalt Helgoland), part of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, holds a one-year old baby European lobster (Homarus gammarus) raised at the institute on August 3, 2013 on Helgoland Island, Germany. Later in the day Schmalenbach and her colleagues released a total of 415 one-year old lobsters into the North Sea as part of an effort to repopulate the lobster population around Helgoland (also called Heligoland). In the 19th century local fishermen caught up to 80,000 lobsters a year in the surrounding waters, combined with the heavy allied bombing of the island during and after World War II, as well as other environmental factors, decimated the lobster population.
