Second spawning approaches
It was only possible to get a view of the first spawning by boat This year it looks like there will be two red crab spawnings on Christmas Island. If you’ve been following our blog, you’ll know the first occurred at the end of November. We’re expecting the second spawning to occur on 29 and 30 December. Some crabs will probably begin spawning a day or two earlier and others may continue a day or two afterwards, with numbers diminishing as time progresses.
