More state waters opened to shrimping

GULF OF MEXICO — In addition to waters previously opened to shrimping, the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources (MDMR) has opened waters in the Biloxi Bay Channel between Beacon 18 and Beacon 26.

The area will be closed, however, if during routine sampling it is found that undersize shrimp have moved into the vicinity.

Recreational and commercial shrimp season will close at midnight, Dec. 31, north of the Intracoastal Waterway, and at midnight, April 30, 2012, south of the Intracoastal Waterway. Live-bait shrimping is open year round.
