LOUISIANA— Governor Jindal announced Outback Steakhouse is partnering up with the Louisiana shrimping industry.

All 14 Outback Steakhouse restaurants in the state will purchase Louisiana shrimp only.

Outback purchased nearly 60 tons of shrimp last year alone.

Governor Jindal says this can push the state's economy and that the next step is to get more restaurants to follow suit.
