What is a berried lobster?

It’s a female lobster carrying eggs under its tail. In Maine it is illegal to keep egg bearing lobsters. Lobstermen will put a v-notch in the tail flipper of egg bearing female lobster and return them to the sea. This practice dates back to the 1900’s and preserves the the future health of Maine’s lobster fishery.
