Number of Crawfish could be greater due to rainfall

More rain equals more crawfish, and an LSU AgCenter researcher says that could be the case this season, according to The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. However, that abundance of crawfish may be smaller in size.

“We had ample rainfall during (the) summer when crawfish are down in the burrows, which gave us fairly good broodstock survival and reproduction,” said AgCenter researcher Ray McClain in a news release, according to The Business Report. “When crawfish population density is high, you typically get way smaller crawfish,” he adds.
