Louisiana Fisheries Forward has put together a wide variety of resources to help freshwater fishermen understand licensing requirements, harvest regulations, refrigeration technology, and best handling methods to produce a safe, quality product. The video at right is a full overview of what is required of a commercial fishermen in the freshwater industry.
We encourage all our fishermen to get involved in the management of our fishery. Attend open LDWF meetings or visit with your local biologist; sign up for news and alerts from LDWF, LA Sea Grant and other agencies; and attend LFF workshops and dock days for the best information on quality handling, safety, new equipment, and more. Your input is needed for us all to be successful.
