Derelict Crab Trap Rodeo:
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) are hosting a derelict crab trap removal program. This program is volunteer-based and cannot succeed without help from those who enjoy our coastal waters and are willing to work to help make a difference. Your cooperation will facilitate the success of the 2016 derelict crab trap sweep. For more information on how to become involved: click here!
