LWF Commission modifies rules for approved Domestic Aquatic Organisms

Posted: Updated:

Today, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission modified the rules and regulations for approved Domestic Aquatic Organisms to include Sterlet sturgeon.

An application for consideration was submitted to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to add Sterlet sturgeon to the list of approved species for aquaculture purposes including processing for meat and caviar. This action today also established a Sterlet sturgeon permit and the permit regulations.

The department heavily monitors this process to limit the impacts from non-native aquatic organisms into aquaculture. Species are considered for approval by evaluating their potential negative risks to native species, their habitats, and human health.

Permit restrictions and the full notice of intent are available here.
