Crabs invade fishing comp

Blue Swimmer Crabs ‘Crusty and Chrisso’ made their 2016 debut at Busselton’s Bluewater Fishing Classic event over 20-21 February, making friends among the 150 competitors and spreading the word on fertiliser use.

Children of all ages enjoyed the South West Catchments Council’s crab colouring-in competition and the fishing rod prizes provided by event hosts - Naturaliste Game and Sportfishing Club.

The delicious Blue Swimmer Crab is at risk of disappearing off our plates if South West residents continue to fertilise their lawns and gardens when rain is forecast.
