Referred to as the 'Spiny Crayfishes' due to impressive arrays of spines on their hard armoured shells, Euastacus crayfish are the largest of the 10 genera of Australian freshwater crayfish. This book discusses all 50 species found in Australia, from the iconic Giant Murray Lobster that is fished by recreational fishers, to the exceedingly rare and tiny species Euastacus maidae.
