A rare blue-coloured lobster, discovered in a shipment at the Colemans at the Gardens store in Corner Brook, N.L., has been donated to the Bonne Bay Marine Institute.
The institute's team based in Norris Point, N.L., will pick up the lobster, affectionately named Coleman this week.
The idea to donate the blue crustacean came from Andrew Coleman, the grocer's Western wholesale manager
It is estimated that one in two million lobsters are blue. The blue colour is caused by a genetic mutation that causes the production of an excessive amount of a particular protein, giving the lobster its blue tinge.
