A rare blue lobster was caught by Blair Doucette, a Canadian fisherman on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 out of the waters off Prince Edward Island‘s north shore, CBC News Canada reported.

According to reports, the color of the lobster is a result of a genetic mutation which affects one in two-million lobsters but is otherwise perfectly healthy and safe to eat.

Blair has been fishing for 35 years and had never seen or catch a rare blue lobster until he hauled one in his latest catch.

“I’ve been fishing for 35 years and this is the first one I’ve ever seen. It was something to see,” Blair said in a report.

The rare blue lobster will stay at Aiden’s Deep Sea Fishing in North Rustico and will be moved to the Rustico Harbour Fishing Museum later this month, The Guardian reported.

Meanwhile, the last blue lobster caught off Prince Edward Island‘s north shore that was reported was in 2009.
