Seafood busi­ness saves ‘calico’ lob­ster

Penticton Herald - - WORLD -

SIL­VER SPRING, Md. — A seafood dis­trib­u­tor wants a rare lob­ster with a speck­led or­ange and black shell to be viewed by many, rather than en­joyed by just one on a plate.

Ocean City Seafood of Sil­ver Spring, Mary­land, was un­load­ing a ship­ment from Maine last month when the owner found the rare “calico” lob­ster.

The Univer­sity of Maine’s Lob­ster In­sti­tute says calico lob­sters are one in 30 mil­lion.

A spokes­woman for the Ge­or­gia Aquar­ium said Satur­day it’s in the “early plan­ning stages of pos­si­bly car­ing for the lob­ster.”
