Why those tasty mud-bugs may not be as plentiful
KFDM News - You might have seen the signs outside several local seafood restaurants touting the return of crawfish season.
But the unusually cold temperatures in Southwest Louisiana have some concerned about a shortage of mud-bugs.
Crawfish farmers say so far this January weather has not been ideal, so they aren't expecting as large of yields as in the past, at least not for the first few months of the season.
The cold water causes the crawfish not to leave their burrows to feed in the traps.
Once the waters warm up, the yields should increase and production will rise.
