LDWF, LSU conducting damage survey for commercial seafood industry

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has teamed up with LSU to develop a survey of commercial business losses from 2020/21 hurricanes. Input received on the surveys will be used to develop an economic impact report, which is needed to establish a basis for federal disaster aid requests in the coming weeks.

The survey is collecting data from marine fisheries/seafood businesses affected by Hurricane Ida, Laura, Delta or Zeta. Entities who should participate in the survey include: seafood producers, seafood harvesters, seafood dealers, seafood processors, charter boat operators, marinas, bait shops, and other marine fisheries businesses.

All affected entities listed above should complete the survey – whether the impacts were large or small. The questionnaire only takes a few minutes to complete.

The survey is available online at: http://lsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5ySexo3D1j4G8nk
