The net was about 50m long. It seemed newly laid possibly the day before, during public holiday?

Huge crab in driftnet at Pulau Semakau (13 Nov 2012)

On a TeamSeagrass trip to Pulau Semakau we found a huge Mud crab (Scylla sp.) trapped in an abandoned driftnet. The crab was about 30cm wide! It was still very much alive.
We also saw and removed a small crab trap.
