Redclaw Crayfish—Investment Opportunities

for the 2020s and beyond

Today, with the completion of stage one of ACH’s fully-integrated crayling production facility, Australia has a unique opportunity to develop a highly professional and profitable state-of-the-art Redclaw growout farming industry. It hosts native stocks and divergent cultured lines of the species, has significant production experience, an unbeaten record for environmental consciousness, and an impeccable reputation in international markets for quality food products. We call it: “The Redclaw Opportunity”. 

What is The Redclaw Opportunity?

With an ever-increasing and insatiable demand for redclaw crayfish worldwide, exceptional investment opportunities abound.

In the words of Mike Rubino from NOAA Fisheries: “Redclaw can become for Australia’s aquaculture industry what mussels are for New Zealand”. There’s no doubt, Redclaw can become a game changer for the aquaculture industry Down Under.

Australia has the land, the climate, the water, and now with the help of Australian Crayfish Hatchery (ACH) the know-how and technologies to become a redclaw crayfish superpower

The ACH 'Redclaw Farm'

Australia is best positioned to become the world’s premier supplier of redclaw crayfish.

ACH is putting the final touches to the most advanced redclaw farming course. 

ACH Fishmeal Free Feed

ACH says NO to fishmeal. Instead, it developed Entomix, its own insect-based protein rich feed.
ACH is seeking reliable partners to manufacture its proprietary fishmeal free feed, Entomix, with which to conquer consumer and commercial world markets, Entomix is insect-based, protein-rich, feed that has proved successful in enriching the diet of its crayfish in ways unknown hitherto, and improving their health overall.

Objective: Forward-looking investors to set up major outposts around the world to secure steady/sufficient supply of healthy craylings all year around

The ACH IP is now a fully integrated system that can be readily implemented anywhere and anytime (due to climate, water and feed control). The ACP IP is a true ‘Redclaw Opportunity’ winner.

Main Competitive Advantage

The ACH Redclaw Growout Farm Opportunity

Objective:  Forward-looking investors to supply global unmet demand for years to come. 

With the completion of its SOTA hatchery and breeding facility, ACH now shifts its focus to growout farming. The vertical integration into growout farming  is a natural progression from solving two of the redclaw industry main impediments to date: egg and craylings supply at numbers and quality all year around. Now it is time for ACH to take a leading role in modern, high intensity redclaw growout farming.

ACH developed Entomix, a fishmeal-free feed that proved highly beneficial to redclaw’s overall health and resilience, be they at the hatching, larval, juvenile or mature life stages. in contrast to conventional fishmeal-based feeds,’ Entomix provides a sustainable and renewable alternative to existing feeds used in aquaculture settings. 

Main Benefits of ACH’s Entomix

  • Incorporates all aspects of healthy nutritional diet; including:
    • Proteins;
