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. 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.
This lobster was painted on a poured background. To the picture added is seen a real postmark.
