Halifax Zoologist: Rainbow Lobster Catches Exaggerated by Social Media

Lobster catches across the Maritimes this season have, despite the odds, proven to be very colourful.

Four blue lobsters, a yellow and an albino lobster have all been caught in the last two weeks.

While chances of catching a yellow lobster are ten times less frequent than blue ones, the odds of catching an albino lobster are one in 100 million.

Lobster used to be cheap – here’s why that changed.  Whatever the colour, you can make lobster butter with the shell afterwards.
