LWFC proposes removal of shark closed season for commercial and recreational fisheries



The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission passed a notice of intent to remove the shark closed season for recreational and commercial fishermen. Currently, shark season is closed for 3 months from April to June for recreational and commercial possession. The proposed regulations would remove the closed season.

Removal of the closed season will allow both recreational and commercial fishermen additional harvest opportunities for sharks, especially those with healthy stocks.
