Introduced species remark In Kenyan part of the Indian Ocean : The burrowing activity of Procambarus clarkii can damage crops, such as rice and taro, and may weaken earthen irrigation dams and levees. Further, this crayfish may eat some types of crops. Problems are especially great where crayfish are not eaten for cultural reasons (e.g. Japan, Kenya), however, even where there is large-scale harvesting (e.g. Spain, Portugal, China), damage to rice fields is considerable (Brock 1960; Correia and Ferreira 1995; Huner and Barr 1991; Yue et al. 2010). [details]
