AN EDUCATION ABOUT CRAWFISH
GRADES & SIZES
Unlike shrimp, there are no standard sizes for live crawfish. Here are some terms and general sizes we use when grading our product.
QUALITY GRADE – VALUE
These are boat run, sight graded crawfish. A mixture of sizes. These crawfish are washed, cleaned and sight graded. They are delivered in our special purple sacks. At the beginning of the season, this is only what we sell. It’s a great mix. Until crawfish have grown to full size and there are enough to grade out, this is the standard and include the large ones. Once grading time starts, then this bag is mediums (my personal favorite).
SELECT GRADE – LARGE
This is our restaurant grade large-medium size. Most people are going to say these are “big” crawfish and many will brag that they are the best they have ever had. They will impress. These crawfish are washed, cleaned & graded. They are delivered in our special green sacks.
PREMIUM GRADE – DANG!!
Dang!! That’s big! These are the biggest crawfish. IF YOU WANT TO BRAG these are the ones you want. Your friends and family are gonna be impressed. Everyone knows that size matters! The bigger the better. These crawfish are washed, cleaned & graded. They count about 18 per pound. They are delivered in our special red sacks. Unfortuately not every year produces these, but the years that do… definately order yours.
