Lobster Institute statistics cited in media reports on yellow, 21-pound crustaceans

RT cited statistics from the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine in a report about a rare yellow lobster that was caught off the coast of Northern France. According to the Lobster Institute, there is only one yellow lobster in 30 million. In cases of blue lobsters, the number rises to one in two million. Meanwhile, the rarest type is the albino lobster — the chances of finding one are around one in 100 million, the article states. The Lobster Institute also was cited in a BWW Food + Wine World article on Vince, a three-foot-long, 21-pound lobster that is on display at Burger & Lobster in New York City. Vince is estimated to be “around 60 years,” according to the Lobster Institute.
