Rare blue-colored red king crab caught

4 posts in this topic

A rare blue-colored red king crab was part of a fisherman's catch earlier this month in Nome, Alaska.

KNOM reports Frank McFarland found the blue crab in his pot when fishing on July Fourth off Nome. The blue crab is being kept alive at the Norton Sound Seafood Center until McFarland can have it mounted.

Would that not be a blue king crab?

From the article:

Crab fisherman Frank MacFarland shows a rare blue-colored red king crab that he found in his commercial crabbing pots [...] According to ADF&G [Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game] biologists, the blue color is most likely a rare genetic mutation. Biologists also report rare occurrences of white red king crab.

Don't want to post the pictures incase they're copywritten.

The only mutation I am really interested in, as far as crabs go, is a self-butter-flavoring meat.

Can you do that for science. WELL CAN YOU?!?
