Last month, Governor Bobby Jindal issued Executive Order BJ09-13 creating the Louisiana Shrimp Task Force. LDWF was delegated to house and staff the task force. The membership, consisting of state agencies, was charged to examine the Louisiana shrimp industry as a whole, identify problems prevalent in the industry and develop plans or propose policies which can improve the economic sustainability of the industry. This meeting is open to the public. Meeting agendas and minutes are posted as they become available.
