What are some interesting facts about crawfish?

They are an excellent source of high-quality protein.  They are low in calories, fat, and saturated fat.  They are a good source of vitamins.  Crawfish muscle fibers are shorter than the muscle fibers in red meats and are more easily digested.  Crawfish are packed with nutrients such as biotin, calcium, iron, niacon, phosphorus, protein, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B-6, and vitamin B-12. It takes approximately 7 pounds of live crawfish to yield 1 pound of peeled tails. Large, mature crawfish have a lower yield of meat per pound than immatire crawfish. Although crawfish tend to be higher in cholesterol than most other shellfish, a 3.5 ounce serving provides only about half of the daily recommended allowance. Consuming a diet high in seafood has been shown to reduce the incidence of Alzheimer's, angina, stroke, asthma, heart disease and cancer.
