Rare Blue Crab Found In Mississippi River

Cape Girardeau, MO (KTRS)  Scientists have found a rare blue crab in the Mississippi River in southeast Missouri.

The Missouri Department of Conservation says researchers recently discovered the male blue crab during fish sampling in the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau.  Adult crabs typically prefer salt water along the coast.

The department says the only other record of a blue crab this far north on the Mississippi or its tributaries was in 2004.  It’s unclear how the crab got into the Mississippi.
