    and what are the cons?

    Especially if they escape into the rivers and dams?

    Pity the link does not provide a bit more information. This is like agreeing and you do not know what you are agreeing to. I would like to be a bit more informed before just putting my name down.

    Yep I agree with RiaanP regarding the information...

    Some cons could be that they could outcompete our indigenous shrimp.
    They could also carry (more) international parasites into SA water systems affecting both fish and birds

    We already have problems with Cherax desructor in our waters
