This red king crab is, er, blue

An Alaska fisherman was stunned when one of the crabs he’d just caught was blue.

Frank McFarland was fishing in the waters off Nome on July 4th when he caught a rare blue-colored red king crab.

The crustacean has become a celebrity, with people showing up to take photos with it at the Norton Sound Seafood Center, where it is being kept until Mr McFarland can have it mounted.

‘A blue crab turns up once in a blue moon,’ he said.
