Rice paddys and crawfish farms go together like rice and étouffée

Agriculture is the practice of breeding, rearing, and harvesting fish, shellfish, plants, algae and other organisms in all types of water environments. On the East Coast, paddy fields and mangrove fields are converted into shrimp farms, while the West Coast, which protects mangrove fields, is more likely to convert idle plantations or paddy fields into shrimp producing fields.

The rice industry traveled south from the Carolinas to Louisiana with Acadian settlers. In Louisiana, rice paddys (an irrigated crop) are often converted to crawfish farms. (Photo by New York Times)

Crawfish Have Health Benefits  

It’s crawfish season in Louisiana, which means it’s time for the traditional crawfish boil. Besides being great to eat, Louisiana’s favorite crustacean and a staple of Southern cuisine, there are some impressive health benefits of crawfish. Low in calories, Louisiana Wild crawfish are a low-fat source of protein, essential vitamins and minerals, and they have nearly half the calories of roasted, skinless chicken breast.

Crawfish look like tiny lobsters and are typically between 3 inches and 6 inches long. Crawfish inhabit freshwater lakes and streams, and the presence of crawfish indicate that the waters they are in are relatively clean, since they rarely live in waters that are polluted.
