Fishermen and scientists do not stop finding many strange and rare creatures, every day something new appears and a lot is discovered, and finding rare marine creatures while fishing is one of the things that are repeated a lot, the last of which is a Scottish fisherman finding a rare creature, which is the blue lobster.
Fisherman Ricky Greenhow, aged 47, has been fishing in Aberdeen, Scotland’s third largest city, since as a teenager fishing in the city, and in his 30 years of working he has never encountered a bright blue lobster.
A marine creature… the ratio of finding it is a million out of 100
The Scottish fisherman confirmed, according to the British newspaper, “BBC”, that the rate of finding this organism is one million out of 100, and this type of special crustacean is colored, due to a genetic defect that makes it produce a certain protein more than others.
The fisherman found him on the deck of the boat
The object was found by “Ricky” last Thursday morning, when he was surprised by his presence on the deck of his boat, and according to what the fisherman told the BBC, after seeing the lobster immediately, he immediately took it and put it inside a box, adding: “Happy to find this blue locust. It’s great, but I don’t have any plans to cook it, I’ve never seen one before even though I’ve been fishing since I was 14.”
Normal lobster is relatively small in size, but what he found was a large size, and despite the great value of the locust, he thought of putting it in an aquarium or returning it to the sea again: “It is not about money, the locusts must continue to live, It’s very rare, it wouldn’t be good to put it in a bowl.”
Lobster in different colors
And it is not the first time that a fisherman has caught a rare sea creature or a different color, according to the British newspaper “Metro”, the orange lobster was caught in Wales in 2017 and taken to the Anglesea Sea Zoo, and during 2011, two fishermen in the British county of Dorset caught lobsters.
