Delcambre Shrimpers Sell Their Catch Online

Gulf Coast Shrimp

Louisiana’s seafood industry has struggled since the 2010 blowout of BP’s Macondo well. The industry was shut down for much of that summer. Perceptions still linger in parts of the US that gulf seafood isn’t safe. We locals understand that great care is taken to ensure the that only fresh, healthy seafood reaches the marketplace. I specifically look for wild caught gulf shrimp when shopping. The LSU Ag Center is helping shrimpers learn techniques of online marketing. Shrimpers in Delcambre can now post their catch online, where consumers can view it and contact the shrimpers directly. The project, Louisiana Direct Seafood, is designed to help shrimpers promote, and inform the public of the quality of their product.
Thomas Hymel of the LSU Ag Center says, “Boats pull right up to the dock and a car can back up to the boat and buy an ice truck full or a pickup truck load full of really nice fresh seafood.”

Customers can log onto for more details. KATC reports, the program has been expanded to the New Orleans area,Cameron Parish,and Terrebonne Parish.
