LDWF Releases Results of Freshwater Commercial Angler Survey

Release Date: 02/18/2013

(Feb. 18, 2013) – Results of a recent Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries survey of resident, freshwater commercial fishermen are now available online.  The purpose of the survey, conducted last summer, was to collect views and opinions of an often overlooked component of Louisiana’s fishery.

Additional information was also collected to help define the demographics of our commercial fishermen and the issues they contend with.  Please see the attached link for a condensed version of the report (link to Louisiana Freshwater Commercial Angler – Condensed).  The full report is available at (Louisiana Freshwater Commercial Angler – Full Report). 

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana’s abundant natural resources.  For more information, visit us at www.wlf.louisiana.gov on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ldwffb or follow us on Twitter @LDWF.
