Crawfish Massacre

Actual picture taken at the 2005 Krewe Char de Guerre Mardi Gras Crawfish Boil Extravaganza.

The Times Picayune reports today that up to 80% of our crawfish harvest this year did not survive the storms. Saltwater from the storm surge flooded most of the ponds in the state. Thus, they will be scarce and expensive this year. The price is expected to stay around $3 per pound live. The price usually drops to below $1 per pound in good years. The 12th (I think) Annual Krewe Char de Guerre Mardi Gras Boil will go on!! But, it's gonna cost us.
