SimpleMost quotes Bayer in lobster facts article
SimpleMost quoted Robert Bayer, the executive director of the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine, in an article on facts about lobsters. The article listed some less well-known facts about the crustaceans, including that they are a good source of several vitamins and minerals and that the Maine lobster industry began as early as the 1600s. If a lobster loses a claw or leg, it can grow back the missing part — and a one-pound lobster takes about five years to regrow a claw to the same size, Bayer said. The article also cited Lobster Institute research stating lobster used to be so abundant that it was eaten by those living in poverty and fed to livestock. The Sioux City Journal published the SimpleMost article.
