This family-owned and operated business is the biggest live crawfish company in Louisiana. Since 1985, the success of Louisiana Crawfish Company has come from a commitment to quality, service, and price. You can expect a shipment of high-quality live crawfish delivered to your door on time. They work with FedEx, UPS, and Southwest Cargo to deliver their crawfish and other seafood products throughout the country and internationally. As their family crawfish farm can no longer support the demand they get for live crawfish, they’ve developed relationships with other fishermen throughout the region to bring crawfish to more people.
Louisiana Crawfish Company has earned several accolades and media features over the years and are a great place to turn for crawfish and other Louisiana seafood. Crawfish and Cajun seafood enthusiasts can also look to take advantage of their Crawfish VIP club.

Depending on where you live, how much you’re ordering, and whether you’re available to travel to the airport, you can get further discounts on your shipping and the total cost of your order. If you live in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, eastern Texas, or southwest Alabama, you can get regional ground shipping on live crawfish at a better price. If you’re ordering 40lbs or more, you can also get a sizable discount through Southwest Cargo Pickup. However, you must live in a city that Southwest Cargo serves, and you must be willing to pick the package up from the airport.
