Sunday Links: Lobsters? On a Wednesday? Edition

Lobster, lobster everywhere, and not a one for eating. No doubt you ocean people are already in the know about the fabled blue lobster, or the one with the fake eyes, or even the half-and-half lobster (above). A lot of these images are of rare genetic abnormalities in lobsters, but bizarre nevertheless. [Thanks, Greg]

They were all set to get their last approval today when someone noticed they had underestimated the amount of fish kill by factors of four or seven. Poseidon claims it was a math error. D’OH!

• Two years Before the Mast, by Enric Sala – OK, Prof. Sala probably will not be, nor has ever been, a foremast jack. In fact, he’s leading a cruise to the Line Islands sponsored by National Geographic. The cruise will be amply documented at a dedicated wesite called Ocean Now. [Thanks to Intelligent Traveller]

In exchange for this, the feds are giving paper mills millions of dollars.  [Thanks Max]
