Crawfish and crab fishermen, catchers, farmers and harvesters rely on sturdy, long-lasting crab wire to build their traps - the cornerstone of their business. In the past, distributors touted their products as 19 gauge crawfish wire, when it was actually a smaller, cheaper material that was measured after being coated with PVC. Petro Wire & Steel (PWS) sells only true 19g crawfish wire that is measured before being hot-dipped galvanized and having a black vinyl coating applied.

This superior quality crawfish trap wire, covered with this PVC equivalent material, is not only durable but is the perfect combination of protection and functionality. Our products can be formed into any configuration you need, and they come in widths from 24" to 48" and openings of 3/4" or 11/16". The length of the rolls is a standard 150'. The high strength to weight ratio of our 19g crawdad wire allows for high volume water flow and the coatings are conducive to easy cleaning and reduced biofouling. Whatever you require for constructing solid wire crab traps, PWS has the coated materials you need.

PWS is an elite supplier of specialty steel products for aquaculture, particularly the crawfish industry in Louisiana. We sell only superior quality products, available both off-the-shelf and customized for your needs.

For more information on ordering, contact PWS at our Houston, Texas headquarters by phone at 713-957-2256 or via email at jason@pwsteel.com. For your convenience, you can also fill out our online form and note any special requests. We look forward to doing business with you.
