Spider Crabs Melbourne

Once a year spider crabs gather in the shallow waters of Port Phillip Bay around Rye or Blairgowrie. They come together to malt in the relative safety of large numbers. This amazing site is equal parts unpredictable and spectacular. It happens some time in winter in this part of the bay. However other areas are known to have aggregations at other times of year. And before you ask no they are not really good for eating!
