Louisiana recreational red snapper season closes Wednesday


BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says the state recreational red snapper season will close at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday.

State officials anticipate private recreational anglers will have harvested the state's projected share of the total Gulf of Mexico private angler harvest — 745,000 pounds, or 18 percent of the total — on that date. The state season has been open since March 20.

The state department is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana's natural resources.
