BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A positive trend continues for crawfish lovers on St. Patrick’s Day. Crawfish prices continue to go down for customers.
“Average retail crawfish prices dropped another 10 cents per pound this week,” according to The Crawfish App. This comes after crawfish prices went down by 50 cents last week and the week before that.
The Crawfish App provided this breakdown of what live and boiled crawfish will cost you this weekend:
The good news is that you will be paying less for crawfish this year than you were at this same time in 2022. The Crawfish App said you will pay 22% less for crawfish this weekend compared to last year around St. Patrick’s Day. What that means is that crawfish will cost you around 60 cents per pound less this weekend compared to last year at this time.
“Oftentimes with an increase in crawfish demand, like we will see this weekend, crawfish prices increase but we were excited to see the docks hold prices this week, and even more excited to see retailers lower prices on average $.10 cents per pound to stay competitive,” said Laney King, co-founder of The Crawfish App mobile app.
