La Fisheries Forward Summit for Commercial Industry
Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 11, 2020, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), Louisiana Sea Grant (LSG), and the LSU AgCenter will be hosting the Louisiana Fisheries Forward (LFF) Summit. The event will take place at the Pontchartrain Center located at 4545 Williams Blvd in Kenner, LA.
The LFF Summit is a free one-day event established with the goal of improving the economic success of Louisiana’s commercial fishing industry. It allows fishermen, dealers, processors, and others the opportunity to discuss the latest commercial fishing issues and view new fishing technology.
This year’s Summit will be structured as an expo, with an open trade show and ongoing demonstrations repeated throughout the day. As a participant, you can choose what topics to learn more about. Lunch will be provided free to all of those who register in advance.
Some of the topics to be discussed include a “Future of the Fleet” keynote panel discussion about overcoming the aging of the fishers, impacts from 2019 flooding, FDA testing of seafood imports, and enhancing shelf life for crawfish and other frozen seafood.
