BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Crawfish Promotion and Research Board is giving students and those interested in learning about the mudbug opportunities to do so.

The board has donated 700 copies of “Louisiana Crawfish: A Succulent History of the Cajun Crustacean” by Sam Irwin to the state’s public libraries and public school systems.

Board Chairman Ralph Babin says Irwin’s book is an entertaining account of the crawfish industry’s beginnings and subsequent development. He says the book should be required reading for all Louisiana residents. He says it’s a valuable resource for everyone.

The 176-page book was released by History Press in 2014 and features more than 100 photographs. The foreward was written by acclaimed Cajun Chef Marcelle Bienvenu. It has been on amazon’s Cajun and Creole Cookbook best seller list since its release.
