We found restaurants in Port Vila (Efate) offering Coconut Crab. Coconut crab is not crab flavoured with coconut, it is the worlds' largest species of hermit crab. Due to lack of data and scientific research, the IUCN Conservation Status of this species is unknown, however they are thought to be endangered. Coconut crabs are now locally extinct from Efate. Due to tourist demand they are being sourced from the outer islands where locals may not fully understand the long-term impact of over-harvesting on their traditional food source. A taste is not worth contributing to the extinction of a remarkable species or robbing local communities of their traditional foods.
