Great setup!
Are they Cherax or Procambarus species?
How different to Macrobrachium farming?

They are just red claw crayfish, and we have found them very easy, like I said we have been to some seminar with the kings project,

We have only had one large one die and it died when it was moulting, soft body,

We do feed crayfish feed but they also get a bit of rice, boiled veg, and some leaves my wife collects, boils and gives to them the kings project said it was natural medicine

It's just so much easier then the pigs

Maybe you can also sell them straight to a hiso restaurant in BKK.

Not that I have any doubt about your story, I just searched a bit about crayfish farming.

Found a FAO paper that states there exists no confirmed or documented case of commercial success raising crayfish in a tank system. The paper is from 2012.

How is your opinion about this?

 

Here is the link to the paper:

Been done in Australia for years and years....also prawns (shrimp). A very successful business if you are willing to put the time into it....

Hi guys, 

This is my firs post, I wanted to get into this as a bit of extra income but I read on FB that if you plan to sell your crayfish you need to register with the police otherwise its a B10,000 fine a day  upto 100k.

 

Where I live its a very popular hobby with a large amount of ppl being involved in it. Have you heard anything about this?

Went to Makro(chumphae) today hoping to get some crawfish to eat

Not stocked at that store yet.They did have giant shrimp with their tail size the same as a fully grown crawfish for 370 baht/kilo.

I will wait for the crawfish.
