For the second year in a row The Iberia Industrial Development Foundation will host its Direct Seafood Academy. It's all about education for area shrimpers. The two day seminar is put on by the Delcambre Direct Seafood an organization which connects shrimpers to consumers.
It's a way of life in Delcambre, and now Delcambre Direct Seafood is setting out to improve this way of life.
"We put together the Seafood Academy to really help bring our commercial fisherman to the next level, its so much going on in this industry and so many things they need to know about so thats what we focus on," said Director of Louisiana Seafood Direct Thomas Hymael.
In addition to the two day classes, later in March, there is a Dock Day scheduled on the Delcambre waterfront, with opportunities for hands-on learning.
