Looking for Live Crayfish

Looking for a source for live crayfish for a summer party, hopefully local and not mail-order. I have been beating my brains out calling places like Santa Monica Seafood, Fish King, 99 Ranch and several places in the SGV without so far any luck. Help!

  1. Artist Crawfish supplies many of the Vietnamese owned Cajun crawfish restaurants in Little Saigon and the SGV. They started by sourcing for their own restaurant, but then branched out as a distributor for other copycats that came along. They sell to the public.

    1. Louisiana Crawfish season is over. Artists Crawfish come from Northern California. See the info above.

        Louisiana Crawfish season is not over yet. I just had some delivered to me this past weekend.

      2. Quality Seafood at the Redondo Beach Pier almost always has live crayfish. Don't know from where, though.

        1. If you just want to get a crawfish 'fix', this weekend is the Crawfish Festival in Long Beach. I believe Bristol Farms is providing the food, so maybe that would be a good place to start....

          1. Move yur party up to Big Bear and fish 'em out of the lake. My brother lives up there each summer and swears by them.
