LDWF Launches Online Ordering for Oyster Hatchery Larvae


remote setting oyster larvae

Beginning February 27, 2020, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will be launching an online ordering portal to provide the oyster industry with hatchery-reared oyster larvae produced at the Michael C. Voisin Oyster Hatchery.

Requests will only be taken via the online ordering portal and will be filled based on the order that they are received with prioritization given to in-state orders. Requests made in writing or by phone will not be accepted. Larger orders may be reduced or split based on the availability of larvae and seed. Payment will not be required at the time of request submission. LDWF will contact those requesting hatchery products at a later date for payment.

The online ordering form can be found at https://fs30.formsite.com/Jfroeba/form80/index.html
