Raising Crayfish and Rice For Profit

Crawfish farming cannot be successfully done without having relevant knowledge about it. One needs to know the right procedure to raise crawfish. Moreover, you must have some steady weather conditions in your region and this whole process might test your patience levels. You also need some additional farming skills like growing a rice pond. You grow rice and when the canopy has grown thick enough to cover the water, you can add seed crawfish into it.

The thick rice canopy helps keep the temperature of the pond cooler. Finding your own seed crawfish from the wild can take a lot of effort so it is better to find suppliers which are usually found in the South Central United States. The following is an article by Stephanie Dube Dwilson on eHow.com. The article describes about the conditions and things that are required to grow crawfish for profit.
