In the month of August, many will gather round the table to hold a Crayfish party. It is during this time of the month that some will go to their summer home and cast their net into the river to catch these black shell fish that looks pretty much like scorpions…delicious scorpions.

According to my Swedish friend, there are many rules to eating and fishing these crayfish:

- You can only catch them during the month of August
- Eat them only in the month of Aug (applies also in the olden days but for some family they still hold on to that)
- You must release crayfish which you caught that is less than 10 cm in length.

These crayfish are usually boiled in salt and spices before being devoured. One is usually required to wear a cone shape hat and enjoy these crayfish with Snaps. As you would have known, the party would usually end up with loads of drunkards and tonnes of crayfish shell all over.

It is quite common to compare crayfish, reason that this happen is because, crayfish sold in the market comes various countries like Spain, America, etc. Every year, there will be a crayfish comparison done and it will be made known to the public which has the best crayfish. As for my personal experience, the Swedish Crayfish is by far the best as compared to those from Caucasion and Spain (this is the worst in both taste and size) . You can buy them fresh or frozen, of course, the fresh ones usually taste better.
