Get Maine Lobster is accepting adoption applications for “Haddie”
Portland, MaineWBRE / WYOU) — A rare “cotton candy” lobster was found on weekends in Casco Bay, Maine. Lobster, now known as “Haddy,” is looking for her eternal home.
According to Get Maine Lobster, the probability of this “lifetime catch” of cotton candy-colored lobsters landing is estimated to be one in 100 million.
Bill Copper Smith Get the main lobster However, he has been a lobster for two years, more than 40 years. Faith Yee, vice president of the company, said he was on a boat in Casco Bay when he found Hadi on one of the lobster laps.
According to Yi, the crew of Coppersmith and Get Maine Lobster were very excited and shared photos of their remarkable discoveries while on the boat.
Coppersmith named the lobster Hadi after one of his granddaughters.
“The color of her cotton candy, which is pearly and looks almost opal-like, is the result of a genetic mutation,” said Yi.
According to Yi, Bill only caught two other uniquely colored lobsters before his career: orange, white, and now cotton candy lobster.
“Lobsters, which stand out like the shades of Hadi’s cotton candy, are at risk for predators. They are unlikely to survive in the wild,” Yi said.
Due to Hadi’s unique coloring, she is never bought or sold for a meal. Yi says she’s currently in a Portland aquarium, but she’s publicly calling on interested aquariums to bring her home so she can live safely.
