A rare orange lobster was trapped in the Bay of Fundy on Friday and is now on display in Alma.

The distinctly-colored lobster can be seen at the Alma Lobster Shop.

Keisha Lomond, an employee at the lobster store, said the rare lobster will be spared from a pot of boiling water.

"We're just going to keep it to show people," Lomond said.

The lobster, however, is being kept in the same tank as all the other lobsters that are caught and are up for sale at the store.

Inside the Industry

The anti-mining group Salmon Beyond Borders expressed disappointment and dismay last week at Alaska Governor Bill Walker’s announcement that he has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with B.C. Premier Christy Clark.

This came just days after his administration asked members of his newly-formed Transboundary Rivers Citizens Advisory Work Group to provide comment on a Draft Statement of Cooperation associated with Transboundary mining.


NMFS recently released a draft action plan for fish discard and release mortality science, creating a list of actions that they hope can better inform fisheries.

We know that fishermen have to deal with bycatch by discarding or releasing unwanted catch overboard, but there is a data gap regarding how those fish survive.
