Please find the following Fishermen’s Gear Compensation Program incident sites for October 2016.

**Note: Due to regulation changes that become final on October 20, 2014, the Fishermen’s Gear Compensation Fund will no longer publish the incident sites in the Louisiana Register. Rather, the information will be updated on the Fish Gear website found here: http://dnr.louisiana.gov/index.cfm?md=pagebuilder&tmp=home&pid=100&pnid=192&nid=200

A downloadable .kmz file is available under the “Incident Site Map” heading for viewing in Google Earth. This file shows all of the incident sites from when OCM started tracking coordinate data (somewhere around 2002/2003). I will still send monthly emails with the info, however you will now have a new avenue to view the data.
