We recently spent a day with Kaikorai Primary School pupils using KEEWAI as a focus point for environmental education around waterways. Second year running the girls were braver than the boys when it came to “who wants to hold a KEEWAI!” Always nice to spend time talking to the next generation about the the importance of water quality and conservation.
KEEWAI won a prestigious environmental award at the recent Environmental Southland Awards. The judges were impressed with how commercial, conservation and environmental considerations were accommodated within the crayfish farming operation: see link for more detail: Environment Southland Award nomination video
KEEWAI have produced a guide to getting started for those interested in Freshwater Crayfish farming. It covers aspects such as freshwater crayfish biology, water quality and regulatory requirements, and is a useful starting point for those new to the industry.
