Abstract A practical guide is presented for crawfish culturists that is written specifically about the red swamp and white river crawfish. The guide explains the anatomical characteristics of these crawfish species, their taxonomy, ecology, and the diseases they can acquire. Additionally, the social importance of crawfish, their cultural and economic impact, is examined. Finally, exploitation and culturing issues and processes are explored, including wild and domestic production, farming, water management, nurturing and protection of the stock, and artificial spawning techniques.
