The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is asking shrimp harvesters to report Asian tiger prawns, a non-native species, in Louisiana waters.
While there is little known at this time about the impacts of tiger prawn on indigenous Louisiana shrimp, these reports are key in helping LDWF biologists monitor the distribution and relative abundance of these prawns and in determining the possible presence of spawning populations.
To report catches of Asian tiger prawns please contact Robert Bourgeois at email@example.com or (225) 765-0765 or Martin Bourgeois at firstname.lastname@example.org or (985) 594-4130, with the date, location and size of capture. Photographs are encouraged.
