Actually... it's NOT Hemocyanin at all. The distiguishing characteristic of the Acamarian race was that the oxygen carrying protein complex in their blood their blood contains both iron and copper. The Vulcan/Romulan equivalent of hemoglobin apparently has no iron in it.

that being said.... Andorians and Bolian are known to have blue blood....
