Public oyster seed grounds to open in March

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission has decided to open parts of the public oyster seed grounds east of the Mississippi River and in Lake Borgne and Mississippi Sound.

The areas have been closed to oyster farmers to protect a successful spatfall event. The area was scheduled to be opened last October.

The opening will last between March 16 and March 31.

During the opening, there will be no sack limit and no sacking-only area.

Meanwhile, the 2013 cultch plants located in Drum Bay and 3-Mile Pass shall remain closed.
