Preliminary Giant Crab tagging Study

Preliminary Giant Spider Crab Tagging Study

This year the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) will be tagging fifteen Giant Spider crabs with satellite technology.

This is a preliminary study to determine if this technique can be used on spider crabs.

If the satellite tag trial is successful a larger study is planned next year to find out more about where the spider crabs move to after they moult.

Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for updates on this work.
