Every state has different regulations for tickling and catching lobster, but all states require certain width or length limits, particularly of the lobster carapace, which is located right behind the head.

Each hunter is required to have a measuring device on him or her when catching lobsters; if a catch is not desired or does not mean size requirements it must be released immediately and without harm.
