The objectives of the report are to identify the influence of time of capture, crayfish size, sex, and eyestalk ablation on soft shell crayfish production; to examine crayfish harvest in production-sized wild rice paddies under simulated commercial harvesting; to examine the influence of crayfish densities on wild rice depredation; to asses sucker production potential in wild rice paddies; to assess the potential of aeration for influencing the growth and survival of baitfish and crayfish in wild rice paddies; to assess the commercial viability of softshell crayfish production; to transfer results of this research to potential entrepreneurs, fish farmers, and other interested persons,
