Lobster buyers Courtney Wall, left, and Clifford Smallwood hold a small, blue lobster at the Botsford Wharf in Murray Corner, N.B. The one-clawed lobster recently found its way into the trap of husband-and-wife fishers Tony and Sherry Trenholm of Cape Tormentine, who fish the Northumberland Strait in LFA 25. The odds of catching a blue lobster are thought to be about one in 2,000,000, although each year at least a couple of the colourful crustaceans are caught by local commercial fishers.
