    Crayfish is the correct name, crawfish, crawdads are dialectical names for crayfish.

    I just looked it up, I thought crayfish lived in brackish waters and fresh like creeks and rivers. We have a lot of brackish water (partly salty, partly fresh) like marsh and we have crayfish that live in the marsh, here. They also live in bayous (fresh) and creeks- sometimes in ditches. They can live on land next to the water. Only a few species can tolerate brackish, though. Most of them are freshwater.

    I have seen crawfish in ponds and streams. I've never seen one walking through a workplace, so this was just as cool to me as it was to you.

    So the crawdads out of Louisiana come from brackish or fresh waters? I thought it was like shrimp fishing. You go out on a Bubba Boat, cast nets, and sometimes you catch shrimp and sometimes you catch crawdads. Any which way, I thought they came out of the Gulf.

    See what Yankee living does to my head?

    (Had I known they could be freshwater or brackish, I wouldn't have wasted my time ignoring them when I was young. I could have searched for enough for dinner. lol)

    You live along the coast, don't you? I haven't seen a lobster or a crayfish cross my workplace... ever. I saw the factory cat playing cat-and-mouse with a rat once. (Cat won.) That was the highlight of animals-at-work for me. lol

    It's nowhere near as hard as shrimping. Crabbing is harder than shrimping, but tonging for oysters is the hardest of all. Tonging involves a lot of upper body strength, and oystermen have REALLY nice arms.

    People can catch crawfish in ditches, here, no sweat- but usually in a creek or bayou. Mostly they use nets or crawfish traps. They don't have to go out into the gulf like shrimpers. When my grandfather was young, he crabbed in the morning and shrimped at night. I admire him for his work ethic. He just stopped working last year, opening oysters (back breaking work) at the ripe old age of 83.

    Useless knowledge- people who open oysters wear gloves with six fingers, there are two thumb holes on each glove. This is because the thumb wears out first, so instead of buying a whole new pair of gloves, you would just use the extra thumb hole. It is due to the way you have to hold the oyster to open it. We call it "opening oysters" here, but in other places people call it "shucking oysters".

    When people go shrimping, they use trawl nets that are attached to a trawler, a board that kind of works like a dredge, so shrimpers catch all kinds of things in their nets, but not crawfish because they are not saltwater animals. They throw a lot of "trash" away- after the nets are pulled up and dumped, shrimpers keep the shrimp and edible fish. A lot of shrimpers will sell flounder or grouper right off the boat when they come in, or take them home to eat. Cast nets are weighted with lead weights, and are used to catch bait fish, porgies (which we call pogies). The pogies are used in crab traps.

    There is a book called War with the Newts.
    Maybe they got it wrong and it was really War with the Lobsters.

    Yes, they are dirty jobs, for sure. I know when I picked crabs, all I wanted to do was take a shower when I got home. We kept our dirty work clothes separate from our other dirty clothes because they smelled that bad. In our town, we sometimes smell the crab hulls from shops, and the students will make comments about how bad it smells. I always say, "It smells like someone is making money." It does smell horrible, and is not pleasant driving behind a truck full of hulls going to the fertilizer plants.
