Will seafood dinners gain in popularity with the launch of the world's first crab hatchery?

Until now, all the crabs you've ever eaten have been fished from the wild. That makes them expensive and, in many cases, unsustainable. Especially in Southeast Asia where diners are crazy for crab. Now for the first time, business groups are answering the demand by developing crab hatcheries. Based in Malaysia, Texchem Resources is leading the race to ensure steady supply of crabs to the marketplace and reduce sourcing from fishermen, ensuring that there will not be a shortage of wild crabs. Plentiful supply usually means lower prices, which in turn leads to higher consumption. That's the kind of social change that can have lasting effects on the way we eat.
