Louisiana crab season reopens

BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) - The blue crab fishery reopens in Louisiana at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday after being closed for 30 days.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries determined last summer that the population was being over harvested. The department implemented a spring commercial crab closure for three consecutive years beginning this year.

The closure is expected to allow crab populations to recover.
