As the effort ramps up to send more Louisiana seafood aboard, metro New Orleans seafood processors, suppliers and fishers are encouraged to attend two free export training seminars in Belle Chasse and Arabi on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We have a lot of fishers here that just sell in the region or national market and this is to try to teach them the process, all the steps it takes, to export,” said David Conner, vice-president of economic development and international commerce for the Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance, which is hosting the events. “Our industry got hit by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike, and the BP oil spill, and now these seminars will attempt to help these fishers, as the fishing industry now is beginning its resurgence after all these disasters.”
