BATON ROUGE (AP) — State wildlife and fisheries officials say the recreational fishing for gray triggerfish will close in Louisiana waters about two weeks.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said Wednesday that experts have determined that the recreational quota of 217,000 pounds was met and the closure is necessary to prevent further overfishing.

The state season closes at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15. Federal waters will also close on that day.
