If you have not seen this yet here is the link to a very interesting read on new development of better Red Claw breeds.

Red Claw being Non Native are likely to be regulated so find out from your state if it is even legal to possess them.  In Florida, one has to be a commercial Aquaculture facility with the Aquaculture certification and conditional species permits for Red Claw in order to culture them, They can't be sold to you in FL unless you have the certifications and permits.

Hi Folks,

Here are 2 papers on the subject which were forwarded to me by a recent UW grad. I'm looking into using the local signal crayfish and would welcome any input from those who have worked with them.

Allen: Thanks. I sent them email.
Lance: Good idea. I kick myself now for throwing out our 27' above ground pool.

I built mine out of 2X12 Treated lumber stacked 2 high and lined them with liner from my local pond store. Works great 3 in operation in various sizes.

If you are looking for fish tanks in Texas you should try Red Ewald. They are located in Texas, have a long track history of quality fiberglass tank building, and can build to suit your needs (depending on the order size of course).

Christine: Thanks for the heads up. I saw one state list but Texas wasn't on it. I'll dig deeper.
John: That's good to know. thank you.
Just fyi. I would like to diversify any tank I have so would optimally like to find a cray, a panfish and a mussel that will nicely play together. Haven't quite found the right combination yet.

Dave, Be carefull if you plan to raise the red claw in Houston because your state doesn't allow them. They may allow you to keep them as pets but you can't produce them to sell.
