Redclaw (Cherax quadricarinatus) are a species of freshwater crayfish native to the north western river systems of Queensland Australia. They are a robust creature with a simple life cycle making them a strong candidate for freshwater aquaculture. They are commercially grown in farms throughout Queensland and farms like Cherax Park are now setting the global standard for professional and sustainable freshwater crustacean aquaculture.
Redclaw has a striking appearance, sweet taste and delicate meat texture which place them at the premium end of the crustacean market. Progressively farmed in clean waters at Cherax Park, Queensland Australia, Redclaw offer a new taste sensation which is a must on any quality menu. With a meat recovery superior to yabbies and comparable to the slow growing West Australian marron – Redclaw is Queensland’s answer to the “mini lobster.”
Cherax Park is located at Theebine, a picturesque rural community 40km north of Gympie, Queensland. The farm was established in 1999. Operating at the highest standard in the industry, Cherax Park has become one of the biggest and most successful freshwater crayfish operation in Queensland as well as the leading exporter in the industry.
Now, Cherax Park is a brand for a diversified and integrated farming base and a research hub. The whole Cherax team is working to their greatest potential to make the business into a vertically integrated value chain and a platform for a comprehensive and sustainable farming practice. Cherax Park is dedicated to become a major player in promoting avant-guard innovations in agriculture and aquaculture, as well as to manage our natural resources to maximize their long-term commercial, recreational and environmental benefits for the community.
