Hello!

I am desperate to do a crawfish boil, but I live in Toronto and apparently they are impossible to source.

I've spoken to some pretty good seafood vendors and they all say the same thing: they're too perishable, too bulky, and not profitable enough.

I am wondering two things:

1) Aside from shipping them personally from the States (which is super expensive), does anyone know where to get crawfish in/around the Toronto area? (there are crawfish in our lakes, but nobody seems to catch them....)

2) If I can't find crawfish, can I use Spot Prawns? What's the difference?

Thanks for your help
