Crab Dinner - Buy at AllPosters.comThe Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) is a statutory authority that operates as part of the Australian Government’s development cooperation programs. The Centre encourages Australia’s agricultural scientists to use their skills for the benefit of developing countries and Australia. Geoff Allan and Don Fielder (from ACIAR) have published a .pdf document for download entitled Mud Crab Aquaculture in Australia and Southeast Asia.

The summary:

Mud crab aquaculture has been practised for many years in Southeast Asia, based primarily on capture and fattening of juvenile crabs from the wild. There is an unmet demand for mud crabs and this has led to over-exploitation in many areas. Difficulties with obtaining wild caught juveniles for farming operations, plus concerns of further over-exploitation, have led to major investments in research into hatchery techniques. To review mud crab aquaculture in Australia and Southeast Asia, ACIAR funded a scoping study, followed by a workshop to review the study and discuss status and problems in different regions. Those results are presented in this report.

A.F. Medina Pizzali has published research via the FAO entitled Low-Cost Fish Retailing Equipment and Facilities in Large Urban Areas of Southeast Asia. Of particular interest from a mangrove crab perspective is a case study from metro Manila.

Four species of crabs are of commercial importance in Metro Manila; these are pelagic swimming crab (Portunus pelagicus), mangrove crab (Scylla serrata), peregrine crab (Varuna litterata) and horned ghost crab (Ocypode spp). Mangrove crabs are considered a delicacy and are always marketed alive. The Metro Manila market is characterised by consumer preference for live mangrove crabs which command high prices; in particular, ripe females fetch premium prices. The domestic market is supplied with mangrove crab the year-round, with a peak season from May to September. During the Christmas period, there is an increased demand and prices of live mangrove crab are relatively higher.
