Two-Toned Lobster

 

 

” A Maine fisherman caught an uncommon crustacean last week, but he was forced to throw it back because its length was less than legal.

  Lobsterman Ben Murdock caught a rare two-toned lobster near Monhegan Island, but he tossed it back because it was too short, his little brother told the Huffington Post. “No matter how rare, a good lobsterman throws back an illegal lobster,” Kyle Murdock said.

  Last year, the Bangor Daily News reported that officials at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute said that “split-colored lobsters are estimated to occur only once out of every 50 million or more.” According to the institute, white-colored lobsters are the rarest of the rare and only make up one out of every 100 million of the crustaceans.”
