There’s somewhat of a slow motion invasion of a fresh water crustacean happening in Buskin River and Buskin Lake. It has a hard shell, two claws and tastes great in pies.
“Crawdads, crawfish, crayfish, it all depends where you grew up,” says Blythe Brown of the Kodiak Soil and Water Conservation District.
The most recent crawdad to be captured was turned in this week by a Coast Guardsman who found it in the Buskin River. It measured seven-inches long.
