The commercial exploitation of Thames Chinese mitten crabs

Damned if we don't - damned if we do.

The invasive Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis is well established in the River Thames, London and is considered a delicacy in many SE Asian countries where ca.US$40 can be paid for a single mature female mitten crab in the right condition at high-class restaurants in China, Japan and Singapore. Therefore, commercial exploitation may be a viable method of reducing crab numbers but do we really want to start a Thames mitten crab fishery?
