White Spot Syndrome Virus is After Our Crawfish
South Louisiana are finding more and more dead crawfish in ponds covered with white spots. According to KSLA, this does not effect the crawfish that we eat but it does effect the crawfish industry.
KSLA also reports that there is not alot of information about the virus since it was last heard of effecting shrimp in Thai land.
The scary part about this mysterious virus is that it is starting to spread. There have been recent cases in Vermilion, Jeff Davis, and Acadia. LSU has even taken samples to study the virus.
I am just happy that the Mud Bug festival is this weekend so I can stuff my face with as much crawfish as I can before they are all gone.
