Can you buy live crayfish in Lakes Entrance?????
Save

We are planning on staying in Lakes Entrance during the first week of March.

Will we be able to buy a live crayfish during this time and where would we buy it from please? Need to take a large cooking pot if we can buy one.

Thanks

Pam

After waiting a week for a reply to my email to the co-op I phoned them and was told they have not had any crayfish in stock since Christmas.

Does anyone know if cray boats come into Lakes Entrance where you can buy them off the boat?

The majority of Crayfish is sold abroad, hence the high prices in Australia.

I haven't seen any crayfish being sold off the boats, only prawns and fish.
