Have your say

A RARE sky blue lobster has been rescued by the Blue Reef Aquarium.

It was spotted by staff at Viviers Fish Market in Portsmouth.

The colouration is believed to come from a genetic defect that causes the lobster to produce an excessive amount of a particular protein that literally turns the crustacean light blue.

The European lobster is the largest and strongest of all British crustaceans. It can live for 40 years or more.
