Yep, that’s a blue lobster alright. According to the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine, blue lobsters are estimated to occur just one in two million times. Why the blue color? It’s caused by a genetic defect, the institute explains, which creates an abundance of a protein that causes the blue hue. And yes kids, there is a Lobster Institute at the University of Maine.
