Subject: American Lobster in Puget Sound

During a geoduck population survey on September 15, 1999, the Tulalip
Tribes survey crew encountered an American lobster (Homarus americanus) in
Puget Sound. The lobster was found off of Gedney Island in Possession
Sound just east of Everett, Washington. It was found under a log at a
depth range between a 36 and 70 foot depth.

The lobster was approximately 33 cm (13.5 inches) from the tip of the
rostrum to the tip of the telson. It had only one large claw and well
developed antennae. It is uncertain how long this had been in Puget Sound.

Please contact me if you any further comments or questions.
