National Fisherman

The LSU Agriculture Center is helping fishermen bring fresh seafood from the gulf straight to your table.
 
In Delcambre, shrimping is a way of life where the industry feeds the area economy. Louisiana Direct Seafood is a marketing initiative that's helped boost that industry since shrimpers were forced out of the water in the wake of the crude disaster four years ago.
 
The mission is to help coastal fishermen connect directly with consumers, selling their catch straight from the boat. The Delcambredirectseafood.com website allows fishermen to post their latest catch, as well as their contact information to the public.
 
"Oh, it's tough sometimes, but it's what we love to do," said Cheryl Granger, wife of a Delcambre fisherman.
 
The Grangers are among the 20 fishermen who are part of the LSU Agricultural Center's project to market local seafood online.
