Live Red Crayfish
New Zealand Crayfish are harvested throughout the year. In general, the lowest catches occur when Crayfish are moulting and mating (usually between February and May). The highest catches occur from June to November, with regional variations. There are nine rock lobster fisheries management areas around New Zealand. Commercial landings fluctuate at about 2,500 tonnes each season.
Adult rock lobsters migrate to deeper waters, sometimes travelling 20 kilometers or more, to mate and lay their eggs.
