Naturally made up fromwashed sediments from the Mississippi River, most of Louisiana?s areas arefantastic breeding grounds for some of the popular catches of fishingenthusiasts. Red snapper, grouper, yellowfin and blackfin tuna, wahoo, makosharks, amberjack and cobia are some of the species that novice and veterananglers aim for when they go on fishing trips, fishing excursions or evenfishing competitions in Louisiana. These species thrive in the marsh andcoastal waters of Louisiana depending on the season. Droves of fishinghobbyists go to Louisiana every summer to get close to these species. ?
But like any othernatural resource, regulations are imposed so as not to exploit the resourcesand turn these species into extinction which is what usually happens if therewere no rules that will restrict the use of such natural resources. In the caseof Louisiana, where it has become a top fishing destination, Louisiana fishingregulations were put in place to make sure that no one abuses the availableresources that will consequently endanger the marine life and resources thatthrive in the waters surrounding the state of Louisiana.
One of Louisiana fishingregulations puts restrictions on the number of fish one can catch. Anyone isallowed a limit of 5 fish which should measure more than 16 inches and withonly one fish measuring over 27 inches. This applies to every fishingparticipant, whether on an excursion or on a competition. Anything outside ofthese measurements is thrown back to the waters. Aside from the sizerestrictions, there are also regulations on prohibited species. This means thatno angler or fishing enthusiast should be in possession of white shark, baskingshark, whale shark, big-eye sand tiger shark, Atlantic angel shark, big-nose shark,small-tail shark, dusky shark, sand tiger shark, Caribbean sharp-nose shark,Caribbean reef shark, Galapagos shark, night shark, narrow-tooth shark, big-eyethresher shark, six-gill shark, big-eye six-gill shark, big-eye thresher shark,small-tooth sawfish, long-fin mako, large-tooth sawfish, seven-gill shark,Goliath grouper and Nassau grouper.?
Fishing regulationsdeclare it illegal to fillet saltwater finfish before the boat docks. Thismeans that the caught fish should be kept intact. Gutting is allowed though.For consumption aboard the harvesting vessel, there should be no more than twopounds of finfish parts for every person on Tungsten ice jigs the boat. This is on condition thatthe boat has cooking facilities for the finfish and that the finfish does notgo beyond the allowed bag limits.?
Another fishingregulation spells out the methods of catching or taking recreational fish fromfreshwater and saltwater. Specific fishing methods include the use of fishingpole, rod, trolling line, hook and line, crawfish nets, handline, bait castingand fly casting apparatus; use of devices known as bow and arrow, recreationalwire nets, yoyo or trigger devices, recreational hoop nets, recreational slattraps, and standard spearing equipment including recreational pipes/drums/tires/cans/buckets.Everyone is prohibited to take or possess fish using poisons, spears, shockingsubstances or devices, guns, explosives, electricity or devices capable ofproducing electric current to shock the fish, and some snagging devices. This regulationis intended to protect small fish from being killed arbitrarily if such methodsare used.http://thomaschap.blogtez.com/post31.php
