Our Sportsman’s Paradise is at risk due to the current mismanagement of industrial menhaden fishing in Louisiana waters and would be improved by enacting HB 1033 that is currently being voted on in the legislature.
Currently, industrial menhaden fishing removes more than 1 billion pounds of pogies and millions of pounds of bycatch every year from the Gulf - 70% of that comes from Louisiana state waters. This is a Louisiana problem since all Gulf States have already implemented harvest quotas.
We are long overdue for reasonable regulations. It’s time to support HB-1033! Send a letter now!
