Scientists from the CDC called in to help with the disease investigation were initially puzzled. Not by the disease so much, which is fairly common in Asian countries where raw crustaceans are part of the cuisine, but by why so many people were eating crawfish in Missouri.

Before the rash of illnesses here, there had been seven cases in all of North America in the previous 40 years.

Weil said a scientist at the CDC, which is in Atlanta, said to him, "In Georgia, we go canoeing and we see crawfish. It never occurred to me to eat one. What's wrong with you people?"

I had a buddy that would eat them raw. It was generally out of a spring though and I don't know if they would have much due to the isolation.

I like mine boiled.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.
