Northern Lobster (Homarus americanus)


Lobsters are members of the phylum Arthropoda, one of the most successful groups of animals in the world. Two thirds of all know organisms are Arthropods. Most of these are insects, but they also include spiders, scorpions, barnacles and the extinct trilobite.

These colorful ‘Crustaceans’, aside from being an important staple to the fishing industry and a culinary treat, are also an interesting research subject due to their ‘chemosensory perception’ which allows them to sense and find food and predators, as well as other lobsters.
