Rare Lobster Found off New England Coast

This fisherman from Rhode Island found this lobster (it is not cooked!) off the coast in Narragansett Bay. The yellow lobster is so rare that this story has made world news!
1 in 30,000,000 lobsters found in nature are yellow.
The fisherman made the lobster available to the public in the fisherman's co-op in Newport, RI and has now been transferred to URI's Narragansett Campus to a museum aquarium so that school children can see him.
