National Fisherman


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.
