Several dietary binding agents were evaluated to produce an artificial moist diet which significantly improved water stability and ingestion efficiency, by redclaw crayfish, by up to 60%. Also behavioural feeding repertoire was described for the first time for this species. A bio-assay was then utilised to compare, and make recommendations on, various feed attractants.
