More Fishing Areas Opened

     BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The state has reopened some offshore

waters off Grand Isle to recreational and commercial fishing.

      Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham says Louisiana's

territorial seas are now open from the eastern shore of Empire

Canal to the western shore of Belle Pass.

      He says his department is working closely with the Department of

Health and Hospitals to get tissue-sample analysis so that fishing

can resume wherever possible.

      All other closures remain in place.
