BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's fall shrimp season is closing in most state inside waters.

Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham said last week that the season would close for most inside waters at sunset Tuesday to let white shrimp grow larger and more valuable.

On Monday, he set closing Dec. 30 in parts of Lake Pelto and Terrebonne and Timbalier bays where the fall inshore season had been briefly extended.

After Dec. 30, shrimping in state inside waters still will be allowed in waters east of the Mississippi River, from the Mississippi/Louisiana state lines south to the eastern shore of South Pass of the Mississippi River.
