On the back of recent changes to the management of Blue Swimmer Crabs in south-west WA, Recfishwest have received queries around research and management information relating to this important recreational species. We have compiled the following information from fisheries research reports, management papers and other sources of information. This information will be updated as we continue to research and serves only as a guide, rather than a comprehensive compilation.
