CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Division of Wildlife says researchers have discovered a new species of crayfish for Ohio.
The first-known blue crayfish in Ohio was discovered in Monroe County on May 19.
According to the Ohio Division of Wildlife, researchers have been trying to locate the species in the state since 1975.
