Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?

A couple of weeks ago the New England Aquarium took possession of a calico lobster and was touting it through their marketing efforts as a one in 30 million lobster.

Either the numbers they are using are off or we here at the dock are the luckiest lobster dealers on the planet and should be stocking up on megabucks tickets because we get 2-5 a year.

I’m pegging the over/under on number of speckled lobsters that are landed at our dock this year at 3.

Here’s the first one I’ve seen this year landed June 1st by our Fisherman Mark Davis aboard the Holy Mackerel-

Just another mutant to add to the gallery of blue, marbled, albino, speckled, yellow, double clawed, triple clawed and other odd lobsters landed here at our dock, Captain Joe and Sons.

    The Calico one is pretty, but my favorite is still the blue. Since they are 1 in 30million, maybe you should see if the Aquarium wants to buy it to add to their 2 in 60million collection.

    Who knew there are so many colors. Thank for posting the slide show. I loved it.

    So many gorgeous lobster photos over the years–my favorite is the girls holding the blue lobster–in their coordinating blue tunics!!!

  4. Jenn says:

    All very cool! The almost white albino is awesome, and all the extra claws are amazing!
