Freshwater crayfish have the attention of watermanagers in The Netherlands because of their burrowing activity and negative impact on aquatic ecosystems. As a result, several attempts are being undertaken to remove the crayfish. However, no attention is given to the follow-up step in this process: i.e. what to do with all those crayfish? This investigation will focuss on the potential use of freshwater crayfish in animal feed. This will be based on crayfish nutrient and energy composition, the requirements of specific feeds and the intervention costs (i.e. the costs under which it becomes economically viable to incorporate crayfish in feed).
