Did you know that there are 6 U.S. states that have a state crustacean? The crawfish became the official state crustacean of Louisiana in 1983. A piece of useless, but amusing information. Unlike flowers, who have representation in every state, crustaceans of the world are still struggling for state popularity. I guess there are only so many of them to go around.
Crawfish are technically not “sea”food since they live in fresh water. Most of the crawfish in the U.S. are grown in the muddy waters of the Louisiana bayou, but are also harvested and enjoyed in other parts of the world (where they are called crayfish). Crawfish look like tiny lobsters and have a mild flavor similar to something between shrimp and lobster. Only the tail meat is eaten is these small varieties, although I have heard of large crawfish, in places like Australia, with claws big enough to hold lots of meat.
