Blue Cod Caught in Alaska has everyone scratching their heads. 

Anglers with Naukati Bay Adventures caught a rare turquoise ling cod last week. The fishing crew snapped a few pictures before releasing it back into the waters.

Biliverdin is the culprit for changing the tint of Cod. In short, Biliverdin is due to the coloration of the blood plasma in the marine fish.
