"I've seen some way bigger than that, like a baby lobster."
Crayfish were first observed on Kodiak around 2015. Now, a local tribal organization is studying their movement, distribution and diet.
Alex Hughes is a Fish and Game technician who volunteers with KSWCD. He said based on their studies at the Buskin river, crayfish are successfully breeding. Crayfish are originally from the Pacific Northwest and as with many invasive species, it’s anyone’s guess how they got to Kodiak.
