American Lobster - Conservation Creature Plush


The American Lobster (Homarus americanus) is the largest lobster species and can weigh up to 45 pounds. Their two claws are used for different purposes. One claw is stronger and used for crushing, and the other is sharper, and used for cutting. They are found in temperate waters along the Atlantic coast of the United States and Canada, in REEF's NE and SAS regions.

REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment!

Each plush comes with a Conservation Card that provides information about the critter's habitat, characteristics, potential threats, and global distribution in REEF's Survey Project regions.

Choose a plush marine animal from your favorite REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project region, or collect all of the creatures for a diverse and cuddly array of ocean life!
