Shrimp Crawfish

I love shrimp. I love crawfish. Until I ran across this I had never heard of a shrimp crawfish, even though I have eaten both for over 60 years. I guess it's just a smaller mudbug crawfish...

An LSU professor is now exploring just that possibility. The Associated Press reports that Greg Lutz, an aquaculture specialist at the university's agriculture center, is experimenting with raising shrimp crawfish, a slightly smaller cousin to the red swamp and white river crawfish Louisianians are accustomed to. Shrimp crawfish also work on a different reproductive clock, laying their eggs in Spring and becoming full sized in October and November.

If you ever get "down under", have some "bugs" - an odd-looking crustation that tastes a bit like a cross between cold-water lobster and crayfish.

We had them last year:

Fortunately for all of those that love to eat mud bugs - they are fresh water critters.
