LAT or Cherax Quadricarinatus found in permanent freshwater streams, billabongs and lakes on the north coast of the Northern Territory and northeastern Queensland. Populations are also found in Papua New Guinea [reference]. The taste sweet and chewy as if King Crab and Sea Lobster is very suitable as alternative to Sea Lobster [references]. LAT more affordable and sustainable which can be farmed in cage or through indoor farming. Sea Lobster especially “Maine” species which cannot be farmed commercially [references].
