THE ban on taking Glenelg spiny freshwater crayfish has been extended until February 28 next year. Fisheries Victoria scientists have conducted research that indicates the crayfish, also known as ``prickly backs'', are vulnerable to over-fishing. The ban prohibits people from taking or attempting to take prickly backs from Victorian waters. The Department of Primary Industries first introduced the ban on March 1 last year. It was to expire on March 1 this year.
