Through July 15, Louisiana’s recreational anglers have harvested slightly more than 506,000 pounds of red snapper — or 68 percent of the state’s annual private recreational allocation of 743,000 pounds.

That means the current weekends-only season will continue to run until recreational landings approach the allocation total — so about 237,000 pounds remain to be harvested.
