An odd lobster
June 11, 2009 - Frank Robinson
I had to put up this short note and photo when I saw it on the AP wire. This yellow lobster now named Fiona recently was caught off Canada. It was given by a friend to Nathan Nickerson, the owner of Arnold's Lobster and Clam Bar in Eastham, on Cape Cod. The New England Aquarium director of research Michael Tlusty says a rare genetic mutation produces yellow lobsters. It's a one in 30 million occurrence.
