Read the latest article from NOLA.com on menhaden harvest
Please read this article by Tristan Baurick from Nola.com on the enormous menhaden harvest that is taken each year from Louisiana waters. Rep. Joe Orgeron, along with 13 bi-partisan co-authors, introduced House Bill 1033, that would require regular reporting by the industry, and would place a reasonable catch limit in Louisiana waters. It does not restrict their total catch, only the catch coming from Louisiana territorial waters. CCA Louisiana strongly supports H.B. 1033, which will be heard by members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee in the coming days. CCA will keep our members posted on the progress of this bill.
