I want to start a crayfish based aquaponics system and am struggling to find a website to buy them online. I have found multiple websites to buy live Louisiana crawfish but I haven't been able to figure out if I could also use those for aquaponics. I have been looking at this website https://www.cajungrocer.com/live-crawfish.html
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks!

I'm not sure how you're going to try and grow these but they are cannibalistic so you may not get as many out of the system as you put in. FWIW some of the crayfish local to you might be better choices, just find a local stream and you'll find them under rocks as the weather warms. I'm not sure if the Red Swamp Crayfish or the White River Crayfish that are commonly grown in Louisiana are considered an invasive species in Iowa so you'll want to check on this if you plan on growing them (these guys are escape artists). Here's a search the first link looked at the Red Swamp Crayfish for it's invasive potential in Iowa -

This one looks at potential for crayfish culture using existing species in your area.
