Rare mutation produces blue lobster

Here. Pulled up off the coast of the province of Prince Edward island (Canada). Said to be a 4 million to one shot. This one’s for the aquarium, not the table.

Mutation explained here.

Apparently, there is a trade in blue crayfish for aquariums, but any similar trade on blue lobsters depends on finding another one, of the opposite sex.

  1. An ex co-worker once sent 4 Maine lobsters to his relatives in Colorado- About a week later he called to see how they liked them. They told him they threw them away because they were brownish and not red (like the red lobster inn)- hence they thougt the lobsters went bad (even though they were packed and shipped by the people who do that for a living).

  3. I saw one of these at the Boston Aquarium a couple of weeks ago. Didn’t know they were so rare!

  4. They are not that rare. I saw one while working on summer at the State of Maine Sea & Shore Fisheries lobster hatchery. I was studying molting for an honors thesis at Bates College. My impression is that they are uncommon but not that rare.

    To b-again 77, look at the book, “Not a Chimp” 23% is very acceptable.

  5. turell, you state “23% is very acceptable”

    Acceptable for whom??? If you mean for me as a Theist, you are very correct it very acceptable to me, but as for neo-Darwinists, though they may pretend that they ‘accept’ it, I can hardly believe that,,, they will of course rationalize it all away as they do with all other contrary evidence that doesn’t fit their religion of Darwinism, but isn’t that the nature of the religion of Darwinism in the first place??? At least for those of us who have seen the sheer deception, and personal attacks, from neo-Darwinists first hand,,, Never any solid empirical evidence to prove anything of substance, only grand story telling with religious fervor!!! ,,, Can I get a AMEN!!!!

  7. How do you know it’s not just holding it’s breath? It is under water, after all.

  8. All the crayfish I’ve ever seen were essentially colorless; some, literally so, being transparent (while still alive).

    Except the cooked ones, which seem generally to be bright read. But, then, I’d not have wanted to put a cooked crawfish in my aquarium, when I had one.

    Wrong.
