Tasmanian Giant Crab held hostage at Sydney Fish Markets

The Tasmanian giant crab has been commercially fished in Tasmanian waters since 1992 and a minimum size was established in Australia in 1993. Fishing is typically by pots in water deeper than 140 m. The Tasmanian giant crab is very long-lived and slow-growing, making it vulnerable to overfishing.
