Crayfish Moult

Caption – A nice 1.5kg Horn Rock crayfish

If you are taking crayfish  you need to check they are not soft. The males are molting at the moment over the for the next few weeks. Basically if they are spongy when you lightly squeeze them they are illegal. If you are not sure how to tell the sex of a crayfish, click on the portal in our links page https://www.mpi.govt.nz/travel-and-recreation/fishing/fishing-rules/central-area-fishing-rules/ to find out all about these & other rules/ information on seafood in our area.
