About eight species of rock lobster live in WA waters but the most abundant by far is the western rock lobster, sometimes called ‘crayfish’ or ‘crays’. They are a temperate species, only found on the continental shelf off the coast, with most living between Perth and Geraldton. They can live for more than 20 years and grow to weigh 5 kg. But due to fishing rules, fishers rarely catch animals heavier than 3 kg.
