  • Description:
    Over 100,000,000 pounds of red crawfish are harvested annually in the U.S. from swamps, marshes, and cultivated ponds, mostly in Louisiana. The red crawfish is native to northern Mexico and the Mississippi Valley as far north as southern Illinois. It has been successfully introduced on both the east and west coasts of the U.S., as well as in a number of other countries. Since 1980, when this book was first written, crawfish culture has expanded greatly, and there is now a proliferation of research data available. The white river crawfish frequently appears with the red swamp crawfish and discussion here has been expanded to include this species. However, the majority of the book is still devoted to the management and culture of the red swamp crawfish, "Procambarus clarkii," the most cosmopolitan of the crawfish species. The text is not intended to be an all-‚Äčencompassing technical treatment, but a practical guide for the crawfish culturist.
