Yes, Purple Eggs, a type of Catfish is laying purple eggs, and the scientists are baffled about it... So what do you all think is the Cause of the purple eggs? I think it has to do with all the polymers in the water is my theory.. there are more polymers than Plankton... right now.. in the environment.

Sounds a lot like the mysterious blue lobsters and blue crawfish. They were attributed to an increase in protein in the water where they were found. Maybe this has something to do with the purple eggs. In any event, a very interesting read.

I did not think of it in that way, but it makes sense, I know different proteins, amino acids, and acids of any sort can change the color of Plants, flowers, etc.. So why not eggs too :) - DNatureofDTrain
