Lobster Information

Maine Blue Lobster

Some people think that live lobsters are red before they are cooked. Not really. They are dark brown, a little green and some red. If a lobster appears asleep, it could still be alive and quite fresh. Put them on the floor, they will eventually move around.

A blue lobster is very rare. Albino white lobsters are even more rare than blue. All lobsters, brown-red, white, or blue, turn bright red when cooked.
