St. Bernard Parish Government and Louisiana Sea Grant to host public seafood market event in Delacroix

St. Bernard Parish Government (SBPG) and Louisiana Sea Grant will host a St. Bernard Seafood Market at the Delacroix Pier on Saturday, June 2, 2018.

The St. Bernard Seafood Market will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the new fishing complex in Delacroix located at 5565 Delacroix Highway. This is a one-time pilot event that will provide an opportunity for local commercial fishermen to sell their landings and various seafood products directly to the public.

The purpose of the event is to gauge interest in a sustainable retail seafood market in St. Bernard Parish. With the support of Louisiana Sea Grant, similar concepts have been successful in other coastal communities, most notably Delcambre.

Eligible vendors must apply for registration no later than May 1, 2018. SBPG will make all final decisions regarding registration, which is limited due to space considerations. Applications will be accepted free of charge.
