Question & Answer: Since you farm your own crawfish, can you ship year round or are you still constrained by the season?
Unfortunately, just like other crops, crawfish have a very definite season when they’re available to harvest. We do have our own farm, but in the intense heat of south Louisiana’s summers, the crawfish burrow down to breed and escape the heat in June and July. They won’t reappear until the fall, and don’t usually reach marketable size until December or January. The season peaks here in south Louisiana in April and May, and usually ends in late June depending on how hot a summer we’re having.
