The Monterey Bay Aquarium states that US farmed crayfish are a "Best Choice", but to "Avoid" imported ones. The MCS, FishWatch and Greenpeace have no data. So while this view is probably too US-centric, in the absence of further information, US crayfish is rated as sustainable and all other crayfish is not.
