KERRY MALONEY / LOUISIANA SEAFOOD NEWSLouisiana blue crab.

The Louisiana Fisheries Forward (LFF) Crab Professionalism Program will reopen July 1, 2016, allowing commercial fishermen to obtain a new, commercial crab trap gear license. The LFF Crab Professionalism Program was designed to provide Louisiana crab fishermen with the knowledge and tools needed to compete in today’s local, national and global economy.

 

The Louisiana Fisheries Forward program was implemented in November 2014 and requires training for fishermen obtaining a crab trap gear license who did not possess a commercial crab trap gear license in two out of the four years, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

 

Application packets and required course training material can be found at http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/crabtraining.
