Healthy Crystal Crabs For Sale
Crystal crabs occur on the continental shelf at depths of 300 – 1200 m. On the west coast of WA crystal crabs are caught primarily in depths of 500 – 800 m, although they are found over a broader range on the south coast of WA (i.e. 400 – 900 m depths). The habitat within these depth ranges are generally sand/mud or broken shell.
Commercial catch records indicate that males are larger than females and the commercial catch is dominated by males with the legally-retainable catch (> 103 mm CL [120 mm CW]) of males being 5.5 times that of legally-retainable females (Daume et al. 2016).
The crystal crab fishery on the west coast of Western Australia has only been commercially fished since the late 1990s. The fishery is largely focused on the coast between North West Cape and Fremantle and most of catch has been taken between 500-800 m. Fishing outside of those depths has contributed less than 5% and in some years less than 1% of the total landings (Smith et al. 2004).
This fishery entered full assessment by the Marine Stewardship Council system in February 2015.
