Not Albino, but…Lobster Found with Rare Pigmentation

11 01 2008

A Nova Scotia fisherman made a rare catch this week when he hauled up a two-toned lobster in St. Mary’s Bay.

The lobster is divided into two colours straight down the middle of its back — dull green on one side and bright orange on the other.

The fisherman who owns the trap the female lobster was caught in has named it Jay after his son, who hauled it on board their boat on Jan. 8.

Jay the lobster has been donated to the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, N.S., as an educational exhibit.
