Project Description

The Louisiana Coastwide Fish and Shellfish Monitoring Program primarily includes two types of monitoring activities: (1) monitoring which is a portion of the coastwide fisheries-independent monitoring program (FIMP) conducted by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), and (2) monitoring which includes several pilot projects that will collect data for better quantification of fish and shellfish relative abundances and densities, species composition and community/food web interactions, and habitat use within the coastal basin.
