BOSTON - A rare periwinkle blue lobster was caught Thursday morning in Marblehead.
A wife-and-husband lobster boat crew made the find while preparing for Hurricane Lee. Anne and David Rodgers were moving their traps, when Anne spotted it among their catch they told the Marblehead Current.
The lobster with a periwinkle blue shell is a rare find, about one-in-two million. The bright coloring is due to a genetic mutation.
The couple ultimately decided to put the lobster back in the ocean because they worried about bad luck with the incoming storm.
