Statement From The Louisiana Seafood Promotion And Marketing Board Regarding Louisiana's Seafood Industry





NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board is still assessing the damages to our fishing communities from Hurricane Isaac. We have heard from many of our industry members; some of whom have sustained little or no damage, while others received significant damage. Though it will take time for those who have sustained the heaviest damage to rebuild or restart their businesses, some fishermen have already returned to work and are bringing fresh Louisiana seafood to market. In addition to fresh seafood, many of our processors also have frozen inventory in stock and will continue to be able to provide seafood to restaurants and retailers.

To support our fishermen and processors, we have relaunched our Louisiana Seafood Newsroom at Louisianaseafoodnews.com to provide industry updates to consumers, businesses and the media. We will continue to provide updates through the newsroom as we have more information. Thank you for your support as we help our seafood communities recover."

Harlon Pearce, chairman of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board

LSPMB was created in 1984 by the state of Louisiana to support their vast historical commercial fisheries industry. The Board is composed of 15 members and each member represents a sector of the industry: harvesters, processors, wholesalers, restaurateurs/retailers, fisheries resource managers, public health officers and marketing specialists.
