In June 2012, the crew of the fishing boat the Pot Luck pulled something unusual out of the ocean off the shore of Ocean City. It was a lobster, but it didn’t look quite right — perhaps because it was a bright, cobalt blue.

The blue lobster is a rarity in nature; only one in two million lobsters have the excess protein that will make their shells turn blue.
