The Australian Crayfish Hatchery is the world’s most advanced of its kind.

Here we regularly deploy the latest disease monitoring and management techniques, resulting in proven significant decrease in mortality rates, increased survival rates, and overall healthier, antibiotic- free and and specific pathogen-free redclaw crayfish for the benefit of all stakeholders down the supply chain, be they growers, restaurateurs and consumers. 

We Hatch Craylings

Redclaw crayfish undergo several larval stages after hatching before reaching a stage that resembles a tiny crayfish. This is the first juvenile stage of the crayfish and is termed the crayling stage (previously termed S3J). Each crayling is approximately 0.02g and 10mm. ACH sells disease-free premium craylings to grow-out farmers the world over.

Ordering ACH's Premium Craylings

Minimum orders: We sell in batches of 20,000 craylings, which is the standard number for stocking one  20 x 50 metres (22 x 54 yards) pond. As a rule, we request all buyers to place written orders at least four (4) weeks prior to their requested delivery as craylings are typically ‘cultured to order’.

Volume Discount Pricing: Typically, large orders (e.g. in excess of 100,000 craylings) will qualify for  volume discount. Note that fully-paid advanced orders (i.e. 6 to 12 months in advance) will qualify for volume discount. Contact us for details

Important: 

By law, the sale of craylings is limited to permit holders only. Grow-out farmers holding a current license are welcome to order using the ordering form below. We advise all other applicants to approach their respective authorities for a relevant permit.
