Can You Guess What These Are?

Each one of these things floats and is color-coded, so the owner can find it if it loses its mooring and drifts ashore. They are used to catch a shellfish that is famous in New England, and all along the northeast coast of the United States. Did you guess?
They are lobster trap bouys! A man in Rockport collects them off the beach and places them in front of one of the stores in Bearskin Neck. If a lobsterman comes by and sees his bouy, he can take it. It's always his!
