In field and laboratory tests conducted to evaluate effects of some pesticides on growth and reproduction of Louisiana red crawfish (Procambarus clarkii (Girard)), applications of methyl parathion and carbaryl to rice paddies planted with either aldrin-treated or non treated seed did not reduce size, weight, or total yield of crawfish. After 1 year, average yields of 877 lb of crawfish were harvested from plots originally stocked at the rate of 1300 pairs per acre.

In laboratory tests, survival and growth rate of young P. clarkii were not affected by 1 or 10 ppm aldrin-dieldrin soil contamination in a tank planted with seed rice. Addition of 0.25 lb Aldin per hundredweight of seed did not affect survival or growth at either soil residue level.
