Area shrimpers' dock day postponed

LAROSE – The Lafourche-Terrebonne area Louisiana Fisheries Forward Shrimp fisheries dock day scheduled for Wednesday, August 5 in Larose has been postponed due to speaker scheduling conflicts and other concerns.

The program, which will offer industry updates and hands-on demonstrations of refrigeration and other technologies, will be held at the Larose Regional Park and Civic Center Pavilion sometime in the first quarter of next year.

The event, sponsored by Louisiana Sea Grant, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and the LSU AgCenter, is designed to keep Lafourche and Terrebonne area commercial fishermen up to date on new technology, best practices for quality and handling, and safety news and regulations.

More information, as it becomes available, will be posted at and the “Louisiana Fisheries” Facebook group.
