Crawfish!

Beginning with the history of the crawfish, first known through Houma Indian legends, this program moves into the twenties and thirties when Huey Long's road-building program helped get the crawfish out of the swamps, and then into modern times as today's crawfishermen harvest this now-popular delicacy. Scientists and state agriculturalists study the crawfish relentlessly, constantly improving yields and harvesting efficiency, while the Cajuns pursue the crawfish almost as relentlessly. From the backyard crawfish boil to the export of millions of pounds of frozen tails, the impact of the crawfish on the people of Louisiana is presented.
