Crawfish Facts

Crawfish "season" typically runs from March through about June. This is when you will get your best crawfish. From August to February the shells on the crawfish are quite hard and not as easy to peel, and they are not as "fat".

And, there is actually a season. Crawfish harvesting begins in the Spring, thus this is why your best crawfish are in the early spring months.

Crawfish farms consist of ponds that are drained and replanted in the summer, reflooded in the fall and winter, and begin harvesting in the spring.
