I was thinking so too because they are the same makeup as the ones you buy in the store. Just they maker them selves pregnant lol. Not like the meat changes or anything it is all the same. They just breed differently.

Once you put them in an aquarium with water conditioners and feed them processed "fish food" they are no longer considered safe for human consumption.

Self cloning cray fish would not be worth the trouble trying to raise as food.

I would look into the following species: Orconectes rusticus, Pacifastacus leniusculus, Procambarus clarkii. Keep in mind local and state laws may prohibit the retention of cray fish that aren't gathered for food with a valid license.

Well hopefully there's not chlorine, chloramines or heavy metals in your water. What size tank are you attempting this in? A pond setting would be best for something like this. I also honestly don't think the those crays will get big enough for it to be worth the trouble.
