Crawfish Tracker: Prices slipping after Easter
BATON ROUGE - Crawfish prices took a much-needed dip in the capital area this week.
According to the WBRZ Crawfish Price Index, the average cost of boiled crawfish at top spots around the Baton Rouge area is $4.79 per pound. Live crawdads are going for around $3.41 on average.
The low for boiled crawfish at polled restaurants was $3.99. Live crawfish were going for as low as $2.50 per pound.
It's a solid drop from last week's average for boiled, which was over $5 per pound. That said, this season is still looking a tad pricey compared to 2020.
