Have You Seen This Crab?

The Department of Fisheries are developing a moult-resistant crab tag to help track crab movements in the Swan River.

The tag (in the red circles) is quite small so keep an eye out!

To date 1000 tag crabs have been released with 84 recaptures.

If you catch a tagged crab please call 92030252 to receive a prize and contribute towards vital research into your local crab fishery.
