Lobstermen make a one-in-five-million find

You can't blame longtime lobsterman Bill Marconi for thinking he caught a Miller Light can last Wednesday when he pulled a trap to find something that marine experts say carries a one-in-five-million chance of being caught.

Call it the kind of catch made once in a blue moon because Marconi snagged himself a rare cobalt-blue lobster whose coloring is said to come from how certain rare animals process a complex antioxidant pigment that is absorbed in the crustaceans' skin and shell.
