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)
