Rob Wilson went diving near Taputeranga Marine Reserve in Wellington, New Zealand, on July 2, when he spotted a group of lobsters aggregating on the outer edges of the reef. Rob Wilson told Storyful: “At certain times of the year, female lobsters form aggregations on the outer edges of the reef. Sometimes these aggregations are for spawning (where the female lobster releases the eggs she has been carrying under her tail).” The rock lobsters featured in the video (Jasus edwardsii) is native to New Zealand.
