Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Licensing Section representatives will soon set up temporary shop in the Bourg office for the sale of commercial fishing licenses to the public.  Most commercial fishing licenses will be available for purchase from Tuesday, April 18 through Thursday, April 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.  The office is located at 468 Texas Gulf Road in Bourg and their contact number is 985-594-4130.


Fishermen are reminded that only cashier's checks, money orders and cash will be accepted at the Bourg office.  No credit cards or personal checks will be taken.  To avoid processing delays, those purchasing licenses are asked to bring their license renewal notices with them.


LDWF has been offering sales of commercial licenses twice a year during November and April from its office in Bourg since January of 2002.  It has successfully provided LDWF with an improved method of customer service and has proven to be a convenient way for commercial fishermen to keep their important licenses current.
