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.”
