BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and
Fisheries says the 2010 spring inshore shrimp season in parts of
zones 1 and 3 will close at 6 a.m. Tuesday to protect increased
numbers of juvenile white shrimp.
On its website, the department describes areas where shrimping
will still be allowed.
It notes that the closure is based on biological recommendations
made by LDWF Office of Fisheries biologists and is not related to
the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
