Mauritius: Crabs project launched in a few weeks in the heart of coastal areas

The Mauritian authorities have decided to set up in a few weeks on the island, a project for breeding crabs 'carle' and soft-shell crab to diversify the sector of aquaculture on the island.
The Ministry of fisheries and wants to develop a farm of approximately 10,000 crabs that grow in individual boxes stacked and which will be fed to the other by a water circulation system.
This breeding project of crabs in the heart of the coastal areas of the island of Mauritius is expected to cost between 2-3 million rupees * and will ultimately in the country no longer have to import large amount of crabs of Madagascar and Asia to serve the local market.
The crab-rearing project should also drain in its wake hundreds of direct or indirect jobs on the island and the overproduction of crabs will be exported to foreign markets, as reported by the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.
* One euro roughly equivalent to 41 rupees
