2020 crawfish season off to somewhat pricey start
BATON ROUGE - Louisianans are getting their first taste of crawfish season, and it's off to a predictably expensive start.
WBRZ's Crawfish Price Index has the average price of boiled crawfish at $5.30 a pound, based on popular seafood spots in the Baton Rouge area. Buying your mudbugs live will cost about $3.77 per pound on average.
It's about in line with prices from this same time last year, when the average cost of boiled crawfish bounced from $6 to $5.22.
Today, you'll be hard-pressed to find anything cheaper than $4 by the pound if you plan on buying boiled. But you can potentially save a few bucks by buying live, with prices dipping as low as $3.
