Title: What is the correct way to kill a crayfish
Post by: Lux on Tue 16 September, 2014 - 10:28 am
 :thinking:  We've always drowned ours or frozen them.

I saw there was a bit of huha over the killing of the cray in the last MKR NZ, I thought she did the right thing - knife through the brain? It was quick.

There's no correct way, there's only the politically correct way of the day and even then people can't agree  :rolleyes:

Drown it in fresh water is the most humane.  :idea:

Apparently drowning is one of the worst, the most humane is to chill for at least several hours which puts it's nervous system to sleep and then a knife between the eyes.

They don't have a central nervous system but one spread throughout their body - so knocking them out with cold is the best way so they don't feel anything.  :idea:

well, f**k it, if you're going to kill something, make it as humane as possible or stop catching the freaky things to eat. Pretty simple.  :hobo:
