Fisherman Catches A Unique ‘One-In-Two-Million’ Blue Lobster

A fisherman from Cornwall, a county in England, managed to catch a rare blue lobster. Tom Lambourn, 25, was fishing off Penzance when he caught the incredibly rare “one in two million” crustacean in his lobster trap.


“With every pot, you never know what is going to be inside, and I’ve certainly never seen one that color before. This is only my second fishing season so I think I’ve been very lucky. I measured it and it was undersized so there was never any thought of keeping it. If it had been bigger, I would have taken it to the National Hatchery,” Tom, from Newlyn, was quoted as saying by LADbible.

Blue lobsters might be rare but still, there are lobsters that are even rarer, according to the BBC. Yellow lobsters, for example, account for approximately one in 30 million, according to estimates from the Lobster Institute.
