Here in Florida and through out the Caribbean, the clawless lobsters (Panulirus argus) are often referred to as "crayfish". I believe Russ has a similar species in New Zealand that are also called crayfish, also found down under. The Chinese also export a freshwater crawfish which I would never touch. In Louisiana crawfish season is from just before Mardi Gras through the end of June. Though some folks sell "pond raised" all year long.

Our best crayfish are exported to China. My nephew used to catch and pack for export prior to covid.
