DELCAMBRE, La. (AP) - Commercial fishermen can learn how to market their catch and meet regulations at one of two free two-hour workshops sponsored by the LSU AgCenter. The first will be in Vietnamese and the second in English, with lunch in between.
There also will be a drawing for $100 worth of fuel, open to people registered for the workshop who have a photo ID and a valid Louisiana commercial fishing license.
Topics include labor training for commercial fishers, how to find workers, labor challenges, direct marketing and quality issues for the seafood industry.
It's March 1 at the Shrimp Festival building in Delcambre, with the Vietnamese class from 10 a.m. to noon, and the English class from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
