The Spanner Crab, also known as Ranina Ranine, is most commonly caught in the pristine tropical waters off the Queensland coast. Spanner Crab is a marine animal and inhabits inter-tidal waters to depths of more than a hundred metres, from sheltered bays to surf areas.

The Spanner Crab prefers bare sandy area. They are usually found buried in sand, from where they launch attacks on passing prey such as small bottom dwelling fish.

The Spanner Crab fishery is the first in Australia to be recognised as a sustainable fishery.
