Louisiana Oyster Monitoring
Entry ID: LA_DWF_oystermonitoring

Abstract: The Louisiana oyster industry is heavily dependent on fishing activities in the
public oyster grounds for both seed oysters and direct commercial harvest. The
data collected produce management recommendations regarding seasonal schemes
for harvesting on public oyster grounds. Annual meter square sampling is done
at pre-established stations on the public oyster grounds across the coast. At
the season's onset, fishing effort is measured.
