Harvesting Crayfish from Lake Tahoe
More than 200 million crayfish swimming around Lake Tahoe. A Nevada man wants to turn that into profit. Fred Jackson says harvesting the crayfish would help control algae blooms and non-native fish. But opponents say letting one company in would open the lake to overcrowding. What are the benefits to harvesting crayfish? The downsides? And is there a real market for crayfish here in Nevada?
