Boston,Massachusetts Restaurant donates a rare blue lobster to a St.Louis aquarium to honor St.Louis Blues winning their first NHL championship
Arnold's Lobster & Clam Bar in Eastham, Mass., received a one in 2 million chance blue lobster in a shipment.
A classy Massachusetts restaurant owner is honoring St. Louis Blues fans with a special gift — an extremely rare blue lobster.

Nathan Nickerson, owner of Arnold’s Lobster & Clam Bar in Eastham, Mass., was shocked to see the cobalt-colored crustacean mingling with the ordinarily green-hued critters.

"I said, ‘I think we have something special here.’ I couldn’t believe the color, Nickerson told CNN. “Everyone was circling around it, just wondering, ‘How did this happen?’”

Instead of serving up the lobster on a dinner plate, the owner plans to ship it to a St. Louis aquarium as a goodwill gesture to Blues fans. St. Louis defeated the Boston Bruins on Wednesday to claim its first-ever Stanley Cup.

“I’d like to give the blue lobster to the St. Louis aquarium out of respect to the St. Louis Blues, who won the championship, to show that Bruins fans have class,” said Nickerson.

But first, he plans to hang on to his exotic discovery for about a week in the hope that his young diners will develop an inquisitiveness for the life aquatic.

“I want the children to see . . . (and) be interested in marine life and this is one way to get them excited about it,” explained Nickerson. “Maybe one can become the next marine biologist.”

Despite many people urging him to release the lobster back into the ocean, Nickerson claims the Cape Cod waters have a sandy bottom, which makes it difficult for the creature to survive.

“There’s no place for the lobster to hide,” Nickerson said. "They like rocky bottoms, and also there are thousands of lobster traps out there now. We want this lobster to stay alive and stay safe.”

St. Louis Blues win their first Stanley Cup Championship

Only one in 2 million lobsters is blue, according to the University of Maine’s Lobster Institute.

The unique coloration occurs when the chemical astaxanthin interacts with proteins called crustacyanins.
