Rare Blue Lobster Caught By Sea Isle City Fishermen

WATCH: Blue lobster molting at Maine State Aquarium

Blue-Lobster-as-Rare-as-1-in-2-Million-Caught-Off-the-Coast-of-Maine-USThe Maine State Aquarium says their maintenance team caught Lila the blue lobster molting earlier this week.  Typically, lobsters shed once a year once they are at a reproducing age.

Berried females also skip the annual molting cycle, according to the Maine State Aquarium. Watch the video here 08:10
