Crawfish (or crayfish) have social, economic and ecological significance in several regions around the world, including the southern United States. Louisiana dominates the crawfish industry of North America in both aquaculture and wild capture fisheries. Crawfish also are cultivated for food in Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina and North Carolina, and are consumed in these and many other states. However, there is no place where crawfish have had more impact on the economy of a region than in Louisiana, where the industry contributes well in excess of $150 million to the state’s economy annually.
