and weighs more than 4 kg (9 lb).
“He is an amazing creature and it’s quite an achievement to have reached such an impressive age,” he added.
The lobster was caught in around 14 feet of water by a compassionate angler fishing for sole in Bracklesham Bay, off the coast of West Sussex.
Lobsters are among the planet’s oldest inhabitants with fossil remains found dating back more than 100 million years.
They are also extremely long-lived with some reaching ages of over 80 years.
The aquarium said the heaviest recorded crustacean is an Atlantic lobster nicknamed Mike who was caught in 1934 and tipped the scales at an awesome 19 kg. -- REUTERS
