Can somebody help me out here? On my recent Adak trip we caught some kelp greenling, and some of them had green flesh. It cooked up white, but I'm wondering why it's green at first? Some of the fish also were green around the lips and under the gills where they would normally be white.
We cut into the stomach of one of them and a blue-green fluid came out that I hadn't seen before, which leads me to believe it's something they're eating. Shellfish?
Years ago I used to spearfish off the Oregon coast and noticed the same thing there with greenling and with ling cod, but we never figured it out there either.
I'm attaching a couple of pics so you can see what I mean...
