The primary goal of the Louisiana Shrimp Association, (LSA), is to incorporate the participation of everyone involved in the shrimp industry and to preserve the culture and heritage of the Louisiana Shrimper and all the Shrimpers throughout the United States of America.
Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA) was re-organized in 2002 to represent, defend and promote the Louisiana Shrimp Industry. Since that time LSA has worked very hard to gain recognition and credibility in this State and on a Regional and Federal level in order to properly represent our shrimp industry. We are the largest organized State association representing shrimp fishermen in Louisiana and the voice of the shrimp industry in our State.
We have worked very hard through the years to gain credibility and positions that allow us to accomplish our goals. We now have permanent seats representing you on the LA Shrimp Task Force, Louisiana Fin Fish Task Force and the LA Seafood Promotion Board assigned by State Statute. We also were the founding members of the GO-FISH Coalition and the Save LA Coalition and have representatives sitting on the Boards of these organizations.
We work closely with Coastal Parish Governments on fishery and fishing community related issues and represent LSA and the LA Shrimp Industry through interviews with PRESS, newspapers, TV, radio, documentaries and university student interviews.
LSA needs the support of all commercial shrimpers in order to fulfill the goals of the Association and sustain the commercial shrimp industry.
