Bad Flooding May Equal Good Crawfish

Friday, May 6, 2011 - 4:11pm

Crawfish farmers in the basin are welcoming the coming water, saying it will make for the best crawfish season in years.

We talked with John Day of Seafood International. He says this will be a major boost for the area.

This time of year, most crawfish come from that location

So far the season has been tough, due to the low water levels in the basin.

As the water rises, crawfish will be shocked and dig into the mud.

This means prices will go down.

Day says we will probably see the lowest cost per pound that's been seen in years.
