WFVX cites Lobster Institute information about blue lobsters

In an article about a rare blue lobster caught off Beal’s Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor, WFVX-TV (Fox 22/ABC 7 in Bangor) noted information from the University of Maine Lobster Institute explaining the blue hue comes from a genetic defect that causes the lobster to make excessive amounts of a protein that creates the color.
