What colors of Lobsters are Rare in Nature?

Saturday, August 24, 2019
Blue lobsters

The colors are important in several marine animals such as crustaceans (crabs, shrimp and lobsters) to hide from to be targeted of predators.

The common color of lobsters in American water are:
- greenish brown
- blackish brown

These colors are perfect adaptation colors, blended to ocean floor in order to conceal from predators.

Surprisingly, fish are common predators of lobster. Crabs are predators too, they eat young lobsters.

Several fish which consume lobsters naturally are:
- cod
- flounder
- tench
- wolfish
- eel
- monkfish
- ocean pout
- dogfish


Yellow lobster, a rare color.

Almost all mainstream medias reported about finding rare color (blue color) of lobster from Maine water recently.

The question then: What colors of Lobsters are Rare in Nature? There are three rare colors:
- blue, 1 in 2 millions
- yellow, 1 in 30 millions
- white or albino, 1 in 100 millions


Common color of American lobsters

Three colors (blue, yellow and white) are bright in the water, thus they are spotted easily by predators.

The white or albino color is the most contrast to the environment, then the most vulnerable. Consequently, the albino lobsters are extremely rare in nature, 1 in 100 millions.

Are rare lobsters expensive? No, not at all. A fisherman offered a blue lobster for US$ 500, but no body interested to bid it.

Normal price is around US$ 40 per lobster in many markets in the USA. Cooked lobsters are little bit expensive.

Have you ever seen rare colors (blue, yellow and white) of lobsters?

  1. I have never seen a lobster in his natural habitat. I even didn't realize that it has so many different colors. The price of a lobster is expensive but they are so delicious. Photos are very unique!

  10. Very interesting post. I didn't realize all those fish ate lobsters! I remember the blue lobster discovered in Maine. Whenever we go to New England we get a lobster. They taste so much better than here in PA. When we were in Nova Scotia the fish were delicious.
