Shrimp season comes to a close in Louisiana

Monday, July 18, 2011 - 3:45pm

LOUISIANA (FOX44) - Some shrimping is off limits as of July 18th, and the inshore season is over for most of the state.
The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries made the call after high numbers of juvenile white shrimp were caught in a recent sampling.

The department says shutting the season down will allow those little guys to mature, for next season.

State waters offshore, are still open, and there are a few areas inshore where you can still shrimp.
