The freshwater yabby is found in inland lagoons, billabongs, waterways and dams. usually caught by dangling red meat on a string in water or by tying red meat into a metal sieve-like bucket and waiting for the yabby to enter the trap. They make the best eating!!
On Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia, they call them Marron and you can purchase them from any of the Marron Farms.
