Hello from England!
We found this lobster trap tag washed up in Cornwall, UK a few days ago and wondered whether it might have once belonged to lobsterman Tom Burns of the boat Arethusa? Not sure if it’s the same person or not but it would be wonderful to find out!
With very best wishes from Tracey Williams in Newquay, Cornwall
I put it into a google map and did a distance calculation- 3052 miles!

Reblogged this on Captain Joe and Sons Wholesale Lobster Company.
I have caught sharks in the Gulf if Mexico that were taged off of England and as far east as Spain. Pretty cool to know that they travel a world of oceans
Hard to believe the Brits come all the way over to poach a trap.
