Empty lobster pots litter a beach on the coastline of western Newfoundland. One of the many lighthouses that dot this coast is visible in the background.
Lobster fishermen are extremely protective of their territory. If lobster fishermen find empty pots on their beaches or in their waters, they will often destroy or sabotage the pots.
Although these pots look old and empty, lobster pots have long lifespans a and are often passed down from one fisherman to another.
