The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will discuss how climate change is impacting fisheries and the fishing industry in the state during its live social media series “Conservation Conversations.”

In addition, guests will discuss some actions needed to address these issues, including how the construction of fishing infrastructure may have to change. They will also take questions from the audience related to the topic.

“Conservation Conversations” will be available on Facebook, live at noon, Wednesday, October 5, by visiting: www.facebook.com/ldwffb/live_videos. Viewers can submit questions about the session’s topic in real-time.

The featured guests will be LDWF Assistant Secretary of Fisheries Patrick Banks, as well as Harlon Pearce, owner of Harlon’s LA Fish in Kenner, Chairman of the Louisiana Fishing Community Recovery Coalition and Chairman of the Gulf Seafood Institute.

LDWF has hosted Conservation Conversations since July 2020. Each session features a topic related to wildlife and fisheries, with guests who can answer questions about that topic.
