Yabbie breeding tanks

Female Tanks

Paired yabbs in tanks remain here until the female lays eggs which attach to her swimmerets and are then fertilised by the male. Once the eggs colour changes indicating they are viable the male is removed back to his bachelor pad tank. Once the eggs hatch and fall from the tail below the wire mesh floor the female is then moved to her holding tank to rest. When the young yabbs get bigger they are halved and moved to another tank. This continues fortnightly till about five yabbs occupy one tank where they grow out to serving size. They are then cold packed and freighted to final destination/restaurant.
