The Murray Spiny Crayfish season is underway.
Department Health and Human Services is reminding people not to eat crayfish from areas where blue-green algae warnings are in place.
Where a warning has been lifted, wait two weeks to eat the crayfish. This will allow the crayfish to purge their systems of algae.
