The crawfish industry is booming in India and other parts of the world.
The number of crawlers in the country jumped from 2,000 to 10,000, according to the National Crawler Owners Association.
And the market is booming, too, with the government announcing in June that it would open a new season for crawlers, in addition to the one that has been running for years.
The industry, which is still underdeveloped, is expected to grow by an estimated 50% this year, according the NCOA.
“We are looking at a 10-fold increase in the number of croc populations in India,” said K.N. Singh, a manager of the crawler trade in Hyderabad.
The boom in the market was sparked by the government’s decision to introduce a new levy on the price of crawler.
Currently, the price for crawler is only 2% higher than that of a beef carcass.
This was the case even though there are still only four or five companies that have the capability to process the meat and sell it.
“This is the first time a government has imposed such a levy,” said Manish Jain, chairman of the industry body.
The government has also introduced an additional levy on meat and vegetables to discourage consumers from buying the carcasses of cattle that are slaughtered before they are killed.
In June, the government announced the levy for the first three months of next year.
The levy will cover all the raw material used to make the crawlers.
It will also cover the labour required to make them, including the workers.
It was not clear whether the levy would apply to the producers of the meat or vegetables, which are sold by individual traders.
There are still many hurdles to overcome.
The Indian government has set aside around $50 million for the industry.
But as per a report from the World Health Organization (WHO), there are concerns that the new tax could affect the health of the people who eat the food and not the industry that produces it.
India has been trying to increase the size of the market for crawfish, which accounts for about 70% of the global market.
However, the number has been steadily declining for several years now.
This could be because the market has become too small, experts say.
This has resulted in a drop in the prices of the products.
“The government’s new levy will have a knock-on effect in other parts.
The next phase will be to see if the industry can withstand the pressure,” said Prashant Jain of the Centre for Food Safety.
