The fisherman reportedly wanted to be a rare specimen to go somewhere, it can be enjoyed by the general public.

“It was nice of him to do that, because it is well-known that they can be sold for a lot of money,” the conservation officer, told SWNS.

Albino lobsters are the result of a genetic condition called leucism, which leaves them with no pigment in their shells.

The cancer is still to be seen in a tank at one of the National Trust’s visitor centre, in the neighbourhood of Whitby, in North Yorkshire.
