Sea Grant blogs provide coastal and fisheries info

Sea Grant blogs provide coastal and fisheries info

Four Sea Grant Program blogs, one Gulf regional and the other three Louisiana-based, provide factual, non-biased information concerning area coastal, fisheries, wildlife, and aquaculture issues.

"BayouLog" is my blog. It provides original articles and information on a wide variety of topics including: aquaculture, coastal issues, crawfish, disaster and emergency, ecotourism, environment, fisheries, gulf oil spill, home and family, hunting, seafood, and wildlife.

The blog can be accessed by going to the site bayoulog.com. It can also be subscribed to, resulting in articles being received by email whenever a new one is posted.

"Chenier Ecology" is an occasional column written by Kevin Savoie, a Sea Grant's natural resources and fisheries agent based in Lake Charles. This insightful blog is available at www.seagrantfish.lsu.edu/resources/chenier/index.htm and covers a variety of coastal, fisheries, and seafood issues.

"Louisiana Lagniappe" is the online version of a fisheries newsletter written by Julie Anderson, a Sea Grant's fisheries specialist. This blog is a great clearinghouse for all of the latest fisheries-related news occurring throughout Louisiana. "Louisiana Lagniappe" is available at louisianalagniappe.wordpress.com. It too can be subscribed to.

"Sea Grant in the Gulf of Mexico" is the blog site for the Gulf regional network of the National Sea Grant College Program. It covers fisheries and coastal news and information relavent to the Gulf of Mexico area.

The Sea Grant programs of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi-Alabama, and Florida are university-based institutions that support research, education, and extension to enhance economic opportunities while conserving coastal resources in the Gulf of Mexico region. This blog can be found at gulfseagrant.wordpress.com.

If you are looking to stay up-to-date on news concerning coastal and fisheries issues in the Louisiana and Gulf regions, then these Sea Grant blogs are a great place to start.
