Crayfish

Crayfish (also called crawfish or crawdads) are freshwater crustaceans that look like a small lobster. Crayfish feed on plants, frog eggs, insects, and small fish. Crawfish boils and dishes with crayfish in them are very common in Louisiana. Louisiana supplies about 95% of the crayfish harvested in the US.

When is crawfish season?

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. Laura

Do crayfish hibernate?

I'm almost ten, but I do know that crawfish do NOT hibernate. If they live in a pond, they just dig deep into the mud to stay warm during the winter. I live in Tennessee, and every spring, my dad and I drive 30 min. to go to a two-foot-across pond to get some crawfish. When we get home, we feed them to the blackbirds. But in two days, it will finally be warm enough to go catch crawfish! I can't wait! this year I will put them in a tank, and keep them as aquarium pets. And if you do not know what to feed them, I am going to feed mine shrimp pellets from petco.

What do crayfish or crawdads eat?

Crayfish are omnivorous and will eat a wide variety of foods, including plants, insects, frog eggs, small fish, dead plants and animals and worms. They commonly feed on submerged, decaying vegetation, deriving nutrients mainly from the bacteria and other decomposers associated with it.

Answer

Common Name: Crayfish (Crawfish, Crawdad, Freshwater Lobster, etc.).

A crawfish's favorite food is soft, decomposing plant matter; however, they will eat just about anything : algae, snails, insects, plants, dead fish, etc. Crawfish are cannibals and will even consume other crawfish that are molting.They will also take food and bury it near the entrance of their den, just like a dog buries a bone.

**In rivers and lakes, crayfish are omnivorous ~ they'll eat dead carcasses, fish eggs, live minnows, plants, algae, leaf litter, all manner of stuff found on the bottoms of water bodies. One caution; crayfish can survive out of water, so be sure to have a lid and/or very steep sides on any container or terrarium you're putting them in, if you are keeping them at home.
