One fish, two fish, red fish, blue crayfish?

Blue lobsters may be extremely rare, but apparently blue crayfish are not that uncommon. A genetic flaw causes overproduction of a protein that combines with a carotenoid molecule called astaxanthin giving the blue colour. Follow this link for an interesting article on the subject of Blue Crayfish.

It also explains why lobsters and crayfish turn red when they're cooked!
