A perch caught in the Rock River in Highgate by Mary Odum and her daughter, Debbie Bechard, is tinged with an unknown blue-green residue. The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is investigating the curiosity but hasn’t come to any conclusions. At this time, discolored fish do not appear to pose a health risk.
