Lobster found with Pepsi logo 'tattooed' on its claw

Lobster found with Pepsi logo 'tattooed' on its claw”

A lobster fisherwoman in Canada said she found an image of a Pepsi can "tattooed" on a lobster's claw.

Lindstrand, who reportedly drinks up to 12 cans of Pepsi a day, told The Guardian that she quickly recognised the logo on the lobster's claw. After a quick photo session, the strangely tattooed lobster was sold along with the rest of the catch, and is probably in Boston by now.

'I was like: "Oh, that's a Pepsi can,"' she said. Last week, a woman found a lobster which has the Pepsi's logo on it.

Lindstrand doesn't agree with either, telling hte paper that because the image on the claw was pixelated, it couldn't have come from a can.

No one knows how the Pepsi tattoo got there - some suggest the lobster grew in a can, while others speculate that a Pepsi box became stuck to it at some point. "But this is probably the first time we see man-made materials attached to the shell of a crustacean like that".

The logo was spotted by Karissa Lindstrand, who has been working on a lobster boat off the coast of New Brunswick, Canada, for four years.

She said the image was not paper but could be scraped off.

'I just happened to notice a blue picture, and got looking at it closer and it was a Pepsi can, ' she said. I'm a Pepsi fan 100 percent. On average it would be about 12 cans.”.

"This tells me there is a lot of garbage in the ocean, if that's what's happening to the lobsters we get out from the water", she added.

"I'm really wishing I would have kept it now", she told the Guardian. This is a case where the lobster not necessarily has been hurt by it, but it shows that even in the relatively deep waters off Grand Manan theres garbage down there, ” Abbott said.

And it's not just New Brunswick that's having a problem with ocean trash.

According to a research conducted by Ellen MacArthur Foundation, between 5m and 13m tons of plastic leaks into the world's oceans each year to be concumed by sea birds, fish and other organisms.

As it takes centuries to break down, it is being brought back into our food chain as it is eaten by marine creatures.
