The Craziest Lobster Contest was run through the Murray GM Facebook Page during December. Lobster fishermen were asked to submit photos of their most unusual catches for a chance to win a $500 gift card. The winner was determined on Jan. 3 by the most likes. Marketing manager Billy Mole says he didn’t expect such a huge response. “The lobster submissions even got a bit overwhelming for me at times with them coming in all hours of the day and night,” he said. There were blue lobsters, spotted lobsters, bi-colour and more. That’s not even counting the bizarre specimens with extra appendages. The contest even pulled in submissions from Hawaii, Ecuador and a fish market in Tanzania. The winner was a rainbow-coloured lobster, which had close to 1,600 votes.
