Topics: 

  • updated blue crab regulations
  • handling peelers and busters
  • derelict crab trap closures
  • shredding system water quality
  • recirculated shredding demo

Please register by October 16. Lunch provided with advance registration.

Coastal Connections in New Orleans @ Oliver Hall Auditorium, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Nov 21 @ 11:00 am

Louisiana Sea Grant will host the Coastal Connections competition for University of New Orleans and Tulane University graduate students on November 21 at 11 am. The competition will be held in room 407 on the 4th Floor of the UNO Earl K. Long Library. The competition, modified from the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) approach to research communication, is an exercise in developing academic, presentation and research communication skills while supporting the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research. Graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research topic and its significance using two slides. Coastal Connections focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.

Derelict Crab Trap Rodeo Volunteer Day: Barataria Basin @ Jean Lafitte Harbor
Feb 8 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Louisiana Sea Grant, working with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and community volunteers, is on a mission to clean coastal waters of derelict crab traps.

Derelict traps are those that have been discarded, lost or abandoned in the environment. Traps can be accidentally lost if they become separated from their buoys by storms or passing boats. Many continue to fish, ensnaring blue crabs and other important aquatic species. Additionally, these wire mesh enclosures pose a potential navigation hazard to boats and can become entangled in other fishing gear like shrimp trawl nets.

In addition to removal, the project includes an educational element designed to reduce the number of traps lost annually and to lessen the impacts of traps in the environment. Data were also collected on the number and types of animals found in the recovered crab traps.
