Western Rock Lobster or Crayfish

The Western Rock Lobster or Crayfish as it's known locally is seen on almost every dive on the reefs around Perth and is highly prized by some for the table. We are allowed to catch them while diving but are very restricted in the numbers taken. The season for their capture runs from November through to June but there is a maximum limit of 12 per recreational boat or 6 per person per day. It was delicious!!

  1. I'm not sure if those beady things on his head are eyes or not, sometimes it's hard to tell, but if they are, I think he's 'daring' you!!
