Hi,

I found a crawfish farm in Sumter. Is there anywhere closer that sells live crawfish when it's in season?

thanks
JD

Jeff, a few years back we did a big crawfish boil in the parking lot of a friends restaurant.He had them delivered alive from someplace out of state, I'm guessing Ms/Ala.Probably your best bet.They are not farmed anywhere around here.


And, I don't trust anybody growing shrimp in what looks like an above ground swimming pool!

The upstate isn't the area for much seafood unless it's from one of the companies that brings it up from the coast.

I'm having a hard time imagining what else an indoor shrimp aquaculture farm could look like, other than a series of above ground swimming pools. They appear to be clean and well-aerated.

From their web site:

Exciting things are happening for Urban Seas this year! We are in the process of restructuring our business to focus more on consulting and sustainable fisheries education. Unfortunately, this means we will no longer be selling our shrimp for local consumption. We are immensely grateful for all of the positive feedback and support from all of our customers.

At least you know what they've been eating, though. I'm off anything raw, myself -- read too many parasite stories.

Noted for my next trip to the coast.

The Lost Cajun does crawfish boils during the season. They are legit. Last year I think they were $9 per pound, so pretty pricey compared to what I can get them for when in La. But they were good. Came with corn, potatoes, and sausage. Just follow them on social media to be notified.

As far as LIVE crawfish to cook yourself? There are some places in La. that ship but that's expensive too. There was a place near Raleigh that farmed crawfish but they were just as expensive as having La crawfish shipped up here. I think they closed down.
