Abstract

In April 2019 I was contacted by a customs officer from a country in East Asia and asked to help identify specimens in a shipment of imported freshwater crayfish. Obtaining information from this country is difficult, so this apparent case of a ‘mislabeled’ ship-ment is shareworthy. According to the customs officer the crayfish originated from a producer in Western Australia, a third party shipped the crayfish from Perth (presumably a legal export), the shipment was la-beled as Cherax cainii and the stated purpose of the shipment was for human consumption/eating.
