Big catch: 10 kg lobster for sale in N.B.
A 10-kilogram male lobster is currently for sale at the fish market for $1,000.
The crustacean, which has been named Big Dee-Dee, was caught in the Bay of Fundy and is believed to be about 100 years old.
"[He's] probably really smart to avoid the trap for that many years," said Big Fish owner Denis Breau.
Big Dee-Dee is quickly becoming a tourist attraction in the small coastal town of about 5,500.
Ontario tourist Helen Medina brought a measuring tape when she stopped in to see the large lobster. Big Dee-Dee was "unbelievable," she said.
"I've never seen anything this big," Hiltz said. "My family is from Nova Scotia so I've eaten lobster but never anything this big."
Big Dee-Dee is a rare catch, Breau said. "His big claws are perfect," he said. "All the small claws are perfect. It's just a beautiful lobster."
The lobster's buyer will have to boil Big Dee-Dee for at least three hours if they're going to eat him, Breau said.
"It's almost like a big roast, " Breau said. "If you cook it right, it's just as good as a small one."
