Lobsters grow by molting. This is the process in which they struggle out of their old shells while simultaneously absorbing water which expands their body size.

This molting, or shell-shedding, occurs about 25 times in the first 5-7 years of life. Following this cycle, the lobster will weigh approximately one pound and reach minimum legal size.
