Bay of Fundy Blue Lobster Caught

It's lobster season again around most of the Bay of Fundy. This week a Bay of Fundy fisherman was in for a surprise when he pulled his lobster traps: one of the occupants was blue! True, lobstermen everywhere occasionally catch blue, speckled or even white lobsters. What makes this fella special is that he's unusually big for a blue lobster - about 4 lbs.

Interestingly, blue lobsters still turn bright red when you cook them and they taste the same as other lobster. No one will be eating this one for Christmas dinner; the workers at the fish plant aren't going to sell him. He'll hang around in the fish tank for everyone's amusement instead.
