The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has recently launched the Louisiana Recreational Creel Survey (LA Creel) to provide precise, real-time estimates of fish harvest. Good data is necessary for sound management decisions about our important recreational fisheries.
This new survey uses a combination of data collected at public fishing areas and phone surveys to calculate harvest estimates. The accuracy and reliability of this survey is dependent on harvest data gathered from interviews at public fishing areas and anglers updating their license contact information.
