LDWF headquarters to sell commercial fishing licenses Friday, August 18th
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will open in a limited capacity tomorrow, August 19th to sell commercial fishing licenses. A small licensing team will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to serve the public.
Recent office closures due to flooding has prevented some commercial fishermen from purchasing their licenses ahead of the shrimp season, which opens Monday on the west side of the state.
As a reminder, commercial fishermen can renew their existing licenses online athttps://www.la.wildlifelicense.com/start.php. New licenses must be purchased in person.
Our headquarters office is located at 2000 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge, LA 70898.
Many of our employees have been severely impacted by the recent flooding across the state, we appreciate the public’s patience as we begin the process of helping our LDWF family rebuild.
