The Procambarus clarkii is a so-called invasive exotic. Originally the animal is found in the US and Mexico and is eaten there a lot. Here it is less common and that is a pity, because the lack of natural enemies has locally caused the animal to become a pest. One of the problems is that the animal digs corridors in dikes and ditch banks. The latter means that cows break their legs. Another problem is that they eat a lot of fish and other native aquatic animals, which puts pressure on biodiversity.
Legislation has long been a problem in combating by capturing. Inland fishermen were not allowed to fish for the animals because there was no legislation explicitly stating that fishing is allowed. Therefore they were not allowed to be sold.
Crayfish catches have now been legalized and we can simply sell them. And you understand that if you eat crayfish, you make a positive contribution to things like biodiversity, cow welfare and dike monitoring. As an added bonus, the slightly sweet lobster meat is also unusually tasty.
There is supply all year round, but in September and October there is less supply.
We advise you to order a cool pack with your order. That costs € 10, but then you can be sure that the animals survive the trip and because they are anesthetized by the low temperature, they do not suffer from transport and remain optimally fresh. In addition, you have a super insulating bag that you just put in the car (takes up little space) so that nothing stands in the way of an impulse purchase order-size frozen pizza / ice cream cake. Less impulsive and perfectionists have armed the insulating bag with the four gel packs supplied. Naturally frozen well in time.
