The opening of the Morganza Spillway could mean good news for crawfishermen who harvest in the Atchafalaya Basin. Louisiana Crawfish Farmer’s Association Director Stephen Minvielle says water has been low in the basin this year, which has kept the wild crawfish small in both numbers and size. Minvielle says it’s hard to tell for sure just what this will mean for next years crawfish season, but as the water rises, the crawfish are becoming more active. Minvielle says river waters rich with nutrients and sediment cause crawfish to boom. He says that’s just what the industry needs right now.
