Maine fisherman finds bright orange lobster; his 2nd rarity

Posted: Updated:

RAYMOND, Maine (AP) - A Maine lobsterman has caught a rare bright orange lobster, the second time he's pulled an odd-colored crustacean from state waters.
    
Bill Coppersmith, of Windham, tells the Portland Press Herald he was out on the Gulf of Maine on Wednesday when he caught the orange lobster.
    
Robert Bayer, executive director of The Lobster Institute at the University of Maine, says the odds of catching an orange lobster are one in several million.
    
Coppersmith caught a white lobster in 1997; a one-in-100 million catch.
    
Coppersmith has named the orange lobster "Captain Eli," after his 4-year-old grandson. It will be kept at the Fishermens Catch, a restaurant and seafood market in Raymond, for about a month and then released.

This story has been corrected to show that the name of the seafood market is Fishermens Catch, not Fisherman's Catch.
