LSUDad said it best.

there really hasn't been that much rain. man made ponds may be getting bigger and more crawfish right now (im not really sure, still too early) but they would have to raise their prices as well so they can make some type of profit too.

I wrote an article on this for the Reveille a little while back.

The dry summer killed a bunch of borrowing cf, cause they need water in their gills to live.

The hurricanes forced a bunch of them out of their burrows, then when the ponds dried up those cf died.

The cold winter prevented a lot of growth in the cf that did live.

All in all...early season production is down 50%. Prices reflect that. The price you pay is more than fair....cf farmers will not make up the losses from this year.
