Lobsters can be found in all of the world´s oceans, as well as brackish environments and even freshwater. According to the University of Maine Lobster Institute, the blue lobster´s colour is caused by an abundance of a particular protein from a genetic defect. While the blue lobster is found 2 in 1 million, the rarest lobster is the white or albino lobster, which occurs in only 1 in 100 million lobsters.
Populations of commercially important lobster species are thought to be declining, and overfishing, particularly of clawed lobsters in Europe, is taking a toll. Additionally, pollution is causing shell rot and other illnesses in normally disease-resistant species.
