harvest method

Crawfish are either farmed in rice fields during alternating seasons or trapped in the wild. Unlike other farm-raised products crawfish are trapped with bait; therefore, harvest is dictated by the catch. Bait consists of pieces of fish in colder months and manufactured pellets with warmer temperatures. Crawfish are harvested in a specially designed crawfish boat. This process is very labor intensive and continues rain or shine.

harvest season

Harvest begins as early as November in a warm year and as late as February with colder weather. The season usually goes into July.
