Rare King Crab

Blue-colored red king crab caught off Nome

Rare specimen piques curiosity of locals and other fishermen, who had never seen one; expert: 'My hunch is it?s just a very rare mutation'

For at least the second time this year, a Bering Sea fisherman has caught an extremely rare blue-colored red king crab.

The latest specimen, which could also be described as lavender-colored, was discovered in a pot on July 4 by Nome fisherman Frank MacFarland.

Scott Kent, a biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, saw MacFarland unloading his odd catch, snapped a picture, and sent the image to the Nome Nugget.
