The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) commended the department on its leadership in the development of LA Creel (an improved recreational landings data collection system) and the work with the other Gulf states and congressional representatives toward a solution that would implement an alternative framework for cooperative state-based management of Gulf red snapper.
Additionally, the commission adopted a resolution to work diligently with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries toward a solution for successful management of the red snapper resource for the betterment of the fisheries, including supporting the Gulf States Red Snapper Management Authority, a framework created by the five Gulf states for cooperative management of Gulf red snapper.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana’s abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.la.gov. To receive recreational or commercial fishing email and text alerts, signup at http://www.wlf.la.gov/signup.
