Direct Seafood Marketing Plan Expanding


A boat-to-table seafood marketing project is expanding to two areas in southeast Louisiana, with plans for the southwest.  Boat captains post arrival times and their catch on the Internet. People can place orders before the boat gets in.  LSU AgCenter seafood project director Thomas Hymel says Louisiana Direct Seafood has worked so well at the Port of Delcambre (DEL-kum) that the AgCenter and Louisiana Sea Grant got a $560,000 grant to add three more areas.  SouthShore-New Orleans includes the area along the southern shore of Lake Pontchartrain, St. Bernard and south to Plaquemines Parish. The LaTer program area includes Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes. Expansion also is planned into the Cameron Parish coastal area.
