Marron (Cherax tenuimanus) is a large freshwater crayfish native to the rivers, dams and waterways in the south west area of Western Australia.
Marron farms harvest their marron from dams by traps or by pond drain-downs. After being caught the marron are taking to holding tanks to become clean and improve product quality.
Marron make excellent eating, very similar in taste to lobster. Given that they are a freshwater species they are far less salty and provide an overall sweeter taste.
They can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as boiling or grilling, and again similarly to lobster, the shells will turn a bright red colour when cooked.
Marron are considered a luxury product and are the subject of a developing aquaculture industry in Western Australia.
