Lake Tahoe Crayfish Harvest Concerns Fishermen

Posted: Updated:

Fishermen in Lake Tahoe say they're concerned about the impact of crayfish harvesting there.

According to the Tahoe Daily Tribune, some fisherman say mackinaw and other trout species that eat the crawfish will be hurt if regulators keep approving more permits to catch the crustaceans.

But the owner of Tahoe Lobster Company was first in decades to begin harvesting crawfish in the lake last summer.

Its owner says harvesting won't hurt the fish because there are millions of crawfish in the lake.
