We’ve had some crazy mutated lobsters landed at our dock over the years including albino, blue, marbled, calico but none that were separated at birth from Star Wars character- Darth Maul.
Separated At Birth? You decide.
Some previous mutant lobster landed at our dock-

We have more documented mutated lobsters here than any other dock on the planet!

Back on June 1st The New England Aquarium declared the Calico Lobster as one in 30 Million which of course we made found of in this post-
we also had a poll in that post and took some good natured shots at The New England Aquarium’s obvious attempt to make the calico lobster they had seem like a much bigger deal than it was-
Calico Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons 6/1/12 One In 30 Million? Really?
Posted on June 4, 2012 by Joey C
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.
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.

I added these photos to our largest documented photo set of mutant lobsters ever documented at one dock in the entire universe– you can view the slideshow of all the crazy lobster landed here by clicking the set at the bottom of this post.

John Todd Writes In-
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!

This is just way too much of a coincidence to have two incredibly rare lobsters landed in the same week. I wonder if it has to do with warm water temperatures

This Albino Was landed Today. Out of probably (I’m guessing 10 million) lobsters I’ve seen landed at our dock over the years this is only the second total albino one I’ve seen.
To top it all off it gets landed in the same week as the triple pincher clawed lobster we got in on Saturday. I wonder if the warm water is making these mutated lobsters more active because it is way too much of a coincidence. HD video coming in about an hour or two.
Big Lar landed this beauty December 14th. It was caught in the waters just off of Jubilee Yacht Club. Video at 8AM

Dave Jewell brought in this blue tinted lobster. It isn’t nearly as blue as some of the other ones we’ve got in the past but I thought I’d throw the pic up anyway to add to the collection. To see the mutated lobster and crab slide show click this text
Mark Ring caught this spotted lobster yesterday. We rarely get them. Probably 2-3 a year with this type of markings. Less often than a blue one or albino one. If anyone wants to come take a peek at it or photograph it I’ll leave it in the tank through the weekend. Bring the kids down, they love this kind of stuff and I’ll even throw in a demonstration on how you can tell the difference between a male and female lobster. You might even get to see a lobster boat get unloaded.

Here’s another picture of the albino lobster next to a typical New England lobster.
Thanks to Paul Movali for the heads up.
Last summer Toby on the Jupiter II brought in a lobster that was yellow in pigmentation, I’ve never in my 33 years down the dock seen a completely white albino lobster. I’ve seen half white ones and documented them in photographs, half blue ones and documented them, but never a completely white one.
Look for the video tomorrow morning.
Thanks goes to Paul Movali for pointing out to me. Paul’s a good egg.
