You could collect your own if you live close to the coast, there is a live shrimp link in the Marketplace forum if you'd like shrimp instead.

Aquaculture ships fiddlercrabs and is very reasonable!!! Think there's a link in weblinks under Cephcare/Supplies! And Jess and I did go collecting today! We got clams, 2 kinds of snails, some crabs and a few mussels! Inklet is happily dining on a clam!!

Try again! You'll find fiddler crabs under salt water invertebrates.

The shore shrimp are good for older octopuses, hard to catch for the young ones.
