Public asked to review revised wildlife and fish values

The following is a news release from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission:

April 28, 2011 - The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) adopted a notice of intent this month to approve changes to the values assigned to fish and wildlife in Louisiana, and to modify the list of threatened and endangered species.  The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) recommended the revised values, which are used to determine fines for individuals who illegally take fish and wildlife.

The list of threatened and endangered species will be amended to match the current federal listing of threatened or endangered species that are in Louisiana.  Key changes were the removal of the brown pelican and the bald eagle, and the addition of the red wolf.

To view the full notice of intent, please visit http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/action-items. Public comment will be accepted at the LWFC monthly meetings on May 5 and June 2. Comments will also be accepted by mail to LDWF headquarters in Baton Rouge through June 2, 2010. Mailed comments should be directed to:

David Lavergne
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
P.O. Box 98000
Baton Rouge, LA 70898-9000
