1 in 100 Million, Huh? Second Albino Caught In A Year By A Captain Joe and Sons Lobsterman

John Todd Writes In-

Joe,

   I forgot to mention when I offloaded yesterday that I had caught an albino lobster in the harbor. I took a few photos with my phone that I thought you might like to see and maybe post on the GMG page. I was going to bring it in but just after I took the last photo a homie dove down and grabbed it off the table, probably thinking it was something other than a lobster due to it’s color. It dropped it just off the back of the boat and out of reach, although I think it was short anyhow. I looked it up and they said it is as rare as 1 in 100 million. I know you had one a while back from Mike Tupper so perhaps they aren’t so rare or they just like to come to Gloucester for the hospitality!

    Wow! What a great story with the homie swooping in and grabbing it – unbelievable. Luckily you got a few pics first. They better revise the stats now!
