One In Every Two Million

Blue lobsters are extremely rare and it’s said only one out of every two million times can you find a blue one. The University of Maine’s Lobster Institute stated that “the coloration comes from a genetic defect that causes the lobster to produce an excessive amount of a particular protein” which is why in rare cases a lobster turns blue.

The 7-year-old male blue lobster was found after the restaurant opened a shipping container of seafood that included lobsters, crab, and other fish and spotted the legendary creature.

“Well looky here—a BLUE lobster 😮! (Only 1 in every 2 million is blue!) This was brought into us after being caught in the Atlantic. Stop in to see it in person!”

The Lobster Gets To Live

They definitely didn’t expect to see a blue lobster and the owner of the restaurant, Nathan Nickerson quickly grabbed it to put in a private container to keep it safe. He later posted a picture of the lobster on Facebook and told people in the area come see it in they wanted to.

Nathan later decided to donate the lobster to an aquarium so it could live out its days in peace.
