A lobster trap (British English: lobster pot) is an effective
way for fishermen to catch many lobsters at once when
lobster fishing. The trap usually consists of a wooden
frame surrounded by a rope mesh. A piece of bait, often
fish, is placed inside the trap. The entrances to the
traps are designed to be one-way entrances only. The traps
are checked every other day by the fisherman and rebaited
if necessary. One study indicated that lobster traps are
very inefficient and that almost all lobsters walk right
out of them.
