BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries continues to move forward with the Louisiana Recreational Creel Survey. This new survey provides real-time data collection and the best data available to fishery managers.

LDWF is using the agency's saltwater fishing license database to conduct email and phone based surveys to supplement data collected through LA Creel dockside surveys.

"We highly encourage anglers to verify the accuracy of their contact information in our fishing license database, specifically their phone number and email address," Secretary of LDWF Robert Barham said. "It's a matter of pride that should be shared by all Louisiana anglers that we are stepping out on our own and providing Louisiana's recreational anglers with the best information available for responsibly managing our fisheries. The best way that anglers can help in this regard is by going online and updating their contact information."
