The Lafourche-Terrebonne area Louisiana Fisheries Forward Shrimp fisheries dock day scheduled for Wednesday, August 5 in Larose has been postponed due to speaker scheduling conflicts and other concerns. This program, which will offer industry updates and hands-on demonstrations of refrigeration and other technologies, will be held at the Larose Regional Park and Civic Center Pavilion sometime in the first quarter of next year.
The event, sponsored by Louisiana Sea Grant, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and the LSU AgCenter, is designed to keep Lafourche and Terrebonne area commercial fishermen up to date on new technology, best practices for quality and handling, and safety news and regulations.
Again, the area shrimpers’ dock day scheduled to be held in Larose on Wednesday, August 5 will not be held on that day and is being postponed until sometime early next year.
More information, as it becomes available, will be posted at bayoulog.com/events and the “Louisiana Fisheries” Facebook group. Additionally, here are a couple of good links to some of the information that will be covered at the meeting and about direct marketing and selling processed seafood: 1) lafisheriesforward.org/fisheries/shrimp and 2) http://www.seagrantfish.lsu.edu/program/index.html.
