A man found a blue lobster in early July while sailing off the coast of Portland, USA. The case, in addition to being impressive, is very rare.
According to a famous proverb among fishermen, the chances of catching crabs of this species are 1 in 2 million, but this claim has no scientific evidence.
Blue lobsters caught off the coast of the United States and returned to the sea
Lars Johan Larsson said in a Twitter post that the animal was returned to the sea to continue growing.
According to a specialist institute known as the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine in the US, lobsters can be born in different colors, the vast majority of which are greenish brown.

Greenhow told the BBC he would introduce the lobsters to a local aquarium or return them to the sea.
“I’m going to call the Macduff Aquarium to see if they want it; if they don’t, I’m going to put it back in the sea,” he told the BBC.
