NSU sells live crawfish | News
Northwestern State University’s Aquaculture Research Center is selling live crawfish harvested from the Center’s crawfish ponds in Lena every week though late May.
Director of the Aquaculture Research Center Julie Delabbio says crawfish are delivered from the center at NSU's main campus at 10 a.m. Fridays and are available for pickup in the parking lot of St. Denis Hall. The price per pound is established every Monday. This week’s price per pound is $3.30.
“We are particularly proud of our crawfish because they are the successful result of our research on increasing production in crawfish ponds,” says Dr. Julie Delabbio. “We get a much higher production out of our ponds than most regional crawfish farmers. All the crawfish we sell are select size. The small crawfish are removed prior to selling. The money we get from these live crawfish sales is reinvested in our research activities at the center.”
Delabbio says she can take orders as small as five pounds.
“The crawfish are in sacks so we recommend those who purchase bring a cooler for transport, particularly on warm days,” says Delabbio. “Calling early in the week is important because we are usually sold out by Thursday afternoons.”
