EXTENSION FOCUS: Marine Fisheries
As the marine fisheries specialist for Louisiana Sea Grant, I work on a variety of extension and outreach projects including serving as editor for the Louisiana Fisheries Monthly newsletter Lagniappe. You can also visit our Louisiana Lagniappe Blog.
What is Louisiana Sea Grant? See the video to learn more. Video
1. Louisiana Blue Crabs: Derelict crab traps and marine debris cause many problems along Louisiana's coasts. We are partnering with Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to sponsor crab trap rodeo cleanups and education events. To find out more, please visit Sea Grant's Derelict Crab Trap website: www.laseagrant.org/craptraps/.
2. Oil Spills and Gulf Coast Fisheries: Due to the recent Deepwater Horizon oil spill, a lot of outreach effort is assisting coastal residents in understanding the spill and promoting seafood safety at the national level.

3. Cocahoe Minnow Baitfish: Live bait for saltwater angling in Louisiana is a seasonally available commodity, due to the reliance on wild-caught bait. Cultured cocahoe minnows could help supplement the wild-caught baitfish supply, and be a valuable revenue source for cocahoe growers. Dr. Christopher Green at the LSU AgCenter Aquaculture Research Station is leading the research on this project. The role of extension on this project is to relay information back to people in region interested in starting a culture business through evening workshops and all day workshops. Cocahoe Minnows
