Zone 2 shrimping closing to let small shrimp grow

4 years ago July 01, 2010 Jul 1, 2010 Thursday, July 01 2010 Thursday, July 01, 2010 6:36:07 PM CDT in News

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says the central zones inshore shrimp season will close at 6 a.m. Monday to let young white shrimp grow to a size worth harvesting.

The department says the closing doesn't have any connection to the oil spill - it's all about letting the white shrimp grow.

It says the closure is for Zone 2 - state waters from the eastern shore of South Pass of the Mississippi River to the western shore of Vermilion Bay and Southwest Pass at Marsh Island.

The department says shrimping remains open in Zones 1 and 3 - state waters east of South Pass and west of Vermilion Bay.
