The inside is the color of Powerade… What happens to the fish caught in Alaska?

An angler in Alaska is making headlines after catching a blue-fleshed fish먹튀검증.

According to local American media such as Fox News on the 22nd (local time), fisherman Joe Schmelek, who lives in Homer, Alaska, caught a fish with blue flesh while fishing last month. This fish was red-brown with red spots and had bluish gills and mouth.

When this angler cut the fish open, he found that the flesh was all blue. Out of curiosity, he scooped up a piece of his meat and fried it in oil, and his green flesh turned white. Schmelek shared this video on Facebook and said, “I tried the green fish and it tasted similar to trout,” and “Nature is really amazing.”

Netizens responded with comments such as “I’ve never seen a fish species like this before,” “It’s an amazingly beautiful fish,” and “What if it’s poisonous?”

The species of this blue-fleshed fish is the Rock greenling . According to the Oregon Department of Wildlife, yellowtails live near rocky reefs in waters from the Bering Sea to southern California.

The scales can vary in color, including brown, red, and orange, for camouflage. The media reported that the reason this fish’s mouth and flesh are blue is because of biliverdin, a pigment produced in the bile in the gallbladder.
