‘Calico’ lobster spared from pot
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.
Ocean City Seafood of Silver Spring, Maryland, was unloading a shipment from Maine last month when the owner found the rare “calico” lobster. University of Maine’s Lobster Institute says calico lobsters are one in 30 million.
Georgia Aquarium staff said Saturday they’re in the “early planning stages of possibly caring for the lobster.”
