Version 2.77


The name crayfish or crawfish is mainly used for freshwater crustaceans similar in appearance to clawed lobsters but in most cases much smaller. There are many species all around the world and many are farmed in large scale and supplied frozen, fresh or cooked, whole or peeled. Although the name crayfish should be reserved for members of the genera Cambarus (North America, eastern part) and Astacus (Europe and North America, western part), it is frequently used for other crustaceans and may also refer to spiny lobster (langust, Rf304).

Several studies indicate cross-reactivity between crayfish and other crustaceans. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
