Fish

Louisiana has an abundance of riches in the fish department. Our fertile coastal marshes, the Gulf of Mexico estuaries and our freshwater ponds and rivers generate an array of fish species that’s as wide as the mouth of the mighty Mississippi.

 

More than a hundred individual types of finfish call Louisiana home, which means there’s a year-round bounty of the freshest catches waiting in our waters.
