COMMERCIAL FISHING LICENSES AVAILABLE IN BOURG FROM APRIL 17 TO 19

Release Date: 03/13/2007

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Licensing Section is reminding commercial fishermen that department representatives will again 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 17 through Thursday, April 19 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.


In addition to continual sales in Baton Rouge, LDWF has offered commercial licenses from its office in Bourg twice a year 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.
