Bayer quoted in Journal de Québec article on blue lobsters

Le Journal de Québec interviewed Robert Bayer, the executive director of the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine, for an article about rare blue lobsters. Bertrand Desbois of the Raymond Desbois de Québec Fisheries reported catching a blue lobster for the second consecutive year near Anticosti Island, according to Le Journal. The lobsters’ rarity means that they are almost never sold and instead are given to aquariums or research institutes. “If you breed two blue lobsters, the offspring will be blue. We see some blue lobsters each year. They are very beautiful and attract attention,” Bayer said.
