The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission has instituted a 30-day ban on commercial crabbing due to a decline in the Louisiana blue crab population from overfishing. A year-round ban also began Jan. 1 on commercial harvest of immature female blue crabs, except for those being held for processing of soft shell crabs.

The 30-day ban on commercial crabbing in Louisiana waters runs from Feb. 20 to March 22 and will be imposed annually for three years, ending in 2019.
