LSU AgCenter surveys crawfish producers about COVID-19 impacts

crawfishThe Louisiana Farm Bureau and the Louisiana State University AgCenter are working together to study the impacts that COVID-19 is having on the Louisiana crawfish industry.

This survey is being used to collect needed information to quantify the impact of COVID-19 with factual data. It is extremely important that we get timely participation of this survey to strengthen the efforts in petitioning the U.S. Department of Agriculture for industry assistance.

If you do not have sufficient records of your crawfish production and price received to accurately complete the entire survey, please still consider filling out and returning the questions that pertain to you.

Producers are asked to complete and return the survey as soon as possible but no later than April 10.

The following are some options for completing the survey:

Please don’t let a lack of data be the reason that we can’t help our crawfish farmers and crawfish industry.
