Why are mud crabs so EXPENSIVE??
Mud crabs are a high-value commodity and are harvested in remote coastal locations in South East Asia. The fishery has a low production and there is little opportunity to increase catch volume. The maximum revenue potential from live mud crabs must be realized for the industry to remain successful. Losses can be unacceptably high, varying between 4 and 10%, with up to 35% mortality in extreme situations. A 10% loss to the Northern Territory (NT) in Australia mud crab fishery represents 60-100 tonnes of crabs with a retail value of ~$2 million/year. The supply chain from
harvest to market for mud crabs fishery can be up to 15 days. The
physical demand on the crabs is extreme as they are transported and distributed in the air. The market requirement is that the crabs arrive in a lively and vigorous condition.
