It’s Crawfish Time!

The first recorded commercial crawfish harvest was in Louisiana in 1880, when fishermen brought in 23,400 pounds - then valued at $2,140.

Today, 120 to 150 million pounds of crawfish are harvested annually, boosting the Louisiana economy to the tune of over $300 million a year. Shown here is a harvest at Savoy Farms in Church Point, La.
