The Rarest Lobster In The World Was Recently Caught Off The Coast Of Maine

The mention of lobster fishing in Maine isn’t all that rare. In a state where more than 100 million pounds of the crave-worthy crustacean were hauled in last year, we tend not to bat an eyelash when we see them being brought to shore. But recently a rare variety was brought to shore and we can’t stop talking about it! The rarest lobster in the world is exciting, but when it’s caught in Maine, we definitely feel the need to share.

James Hook and Company is located in Boston, Massachusetts. Check it out, but don’t forget that the rarest lobster in the world was caught in Maine!

This isn’t the first time a rare lobster has been brought to shore here in Maine. Back in 2019 a Maine fisherman caught three rare lobsters in one haul! Have you ever caught something unexpected off the shores of Maine? Tell us your best fishing story in the comments!

Other rare types of lobsters come in blue, yellow, and perhaps even other colors of the rainbow.
