Odd Question regarding Keeping Florida Spiny Lobster

MackokidMackokid Posts: 901 Officer
Are you allowed to keep a legal lobster and put into a large aquarium? Is there a law stating you have to kill it? I keep reading the term harvest, not kill in all the regs. Thanks!!

    I can't see why it wouldn't be. Once it's legally harvested, you should be able to do what you want with it. I kept two legal lobsters in a big saltwater tank for a couple of years.

    As long as you release them when the season closes. :)
