‘Cal­ico’ lobster spared from pot

The Daily Courier - - 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.

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.”
