A father and son fishing in Casco Bay Thursday morning caught a rare, blue lobster that will be preserved in a tank at one of the Portland waterfront’s best-known restaurants.

The lobster, which is bright blue, was caught in the ocean waters beyond Peaks Island, said Luke Rand, who serves as sternman on his father’s boat, the Audrey B. Rand. Rand, 36, has been fishing since he was 16.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We’ve never pulled one this color or even seen one to throw back,” said Rand, who lives in Falmouth. His dad, Mark Rand, has been fishing for more than 40 years.


This lobster won’t end up on anyone’s dinner plate.

The father and son said they will keep it alive by feeding it fish, then it will be put on display to live in a tank at Becky’s Diner, which is owned by Luke’s mother, Becky Rand.

The report explains that blue lobsters are very rare, and the chances of finding one are 1 in 2 million.
