Boston Globe cites UMaine statistics in report on Trump’s potential blue lobster dinner

The Boston Globe cited statistics from the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine in a report about an upcoming Paris dinner between President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron. The two presidents were expected to have dinner at Le Jules Verne, the posh restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower which is known to have baked blue lobster with caviar on the menu, according to the article. In New England, blue lobsters make news because they are rare. The chances of catching a North American blue lobster are one in two million, according to the Lobster Institute. Blue lobster on the Le Jules Verne menu are probably the not-so-rare European lobsters, which are closely related to North American lobsters, but their shells are mostly blue when taken from the ocean. Both lobsters turn red when cooked, The Boston Globe reported.
