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.

NMFS has awarded 16 grants totaling more than $2.5 million as part of its Bycatch Reduction Engineering Program.

The program supports the development of technological solutions and changes in fishing practices designed to minimize bycatch and aims to to find creative approaches and strategies for reducing bycatch, seabird interactions, and post-release mortality in federally managed fisheries.


Abe Williams, who was elected to the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association board last spring, has been selected as the new president as of September.

Williams fishes the F/V Crimson Fury, and is president of Nuna Resources, a nonprofit that supports sustainable resource development in rural Alaska, including fighting for an international solution to issues raised by the proposed Pebble Mine project.
