KINGMAN - The crayfish is known by many names, such as crawdad and mudbug, and this tasty freshwater relative of the lobster has infested many Arizona waterways.

This Friday, the next installment in the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Summer Wildlife Series will focus on this invasive species.

"People can come learn about the natural history of crayfish, how to trap and cook them, and the best places to find them," said Zen Mocarski, the information and education program manager for the Game and Fish Region 3 field office in Kingman. "The presentation will include information on existing laws, invasive species and a few recipes."

There is no bag limit on crayfish: "All you need is a fishing license and you're good to get started," Mocarski said.

The presentation takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Kingman Mohave County Library, 3269 N. Burbank Street. Seating is free but will be limited to 51 people.

For more information, contact Mocarski at (928) 692-7700, ext. 2301, or at zmocarksi@azgfd.gov.
