Correct Measurement of Mudcrab


Recommended Posts

Apparently new measuring laws have come in stating that you can only measure a mud crab across the top of the carapace(widest point 15cm,same as previous rule), previously you could also measure them underneath if the top of the carapace was damaged.

With measuring a muddie now,is tip to tip or notch to notch classed as the widest part of the carapace.

I am of the belief it is tip to tip.

With sandies,its clearly stated that it is a notch to notch measurement,because years ago some would snap of one or both of the tips, then argue the toss, if checked by fishery officers

Can not find a clear defined statement for muddies.

cheers Gad
