Seafood business saves ‘calico’ lobster
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.”
