I cook up crawfish all the time, they're easy to find around camp streams and such.

I do it a lot. you can touch a piece of the meat to your lip and wait for 10 minutes if your wondering if its safe.
>>
>>22046
what happens if it's unsafe?
>>
>>22047
Not him, but probably irritation, swelling, soreness, etc. (Probably) nothing that will kill you, but better to have the irritation take place near the outside of the body from mere contact with the item than it is to have that shit inside your body and your stomach trying to absorb it.

Google the universal edibility test.

I always thought it was strange that people on survival shows don't take advantage of them more often. They're usually quite abundant on most shores.

it's cause there's no way to know if there was a harmful algal bloom in the area. red tide is the one everyone knows about, but there are a bunch that don't change water color at all. they can do anything from give you the shits to make you piss yourself until you die of dehydration, or go crazy and then be progressively paralyzed until your heart stops.

if you know the area and can watch the wildlife feeding, you're ok.

I might be a retard but sometimes I just open one of those clam things open at the ocean and eat it raw. Sushi muthafucka!

idk, now a fish our crab. but even if I did like them, I've heard bad things.
>>
>>22043
Don't eat the ones that are exposed to air during low tide.

Beyond that, I recommend cooking them to avoid parasites. Boiling with bay leaves and spices should be sufficient.
