I'm not sure of the species but in Florida they have succeeded in breeding a
blue crayfish. It's the same species that is common in my area as well. I did
catch on of those Cajun crayfish here last summer. They were introduced from
crayfish farms, it was bright red! I have seen wild crayfish around here that
were very close to being blue, no doubt where the Florida ones came from.
