Last Louisiana outside waters will open to shrimping Monday

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Officials say Louisiana’s outside waters that are still closed to shrimping will open at 6 a.m. Monday.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says inside waters will remain closed.

A news release Friday said biologists have found that small white shrimp which spent the winter in the outside waters have reached marketable sizes.

The area in question is offshore from the Atchafalaya River Ship Channel at Eugene Island to the western shore of Freshwater Bayou Canal. It covers the area between the boundary of inside and outside waters and the 3-mile line where federal waters begin.
