NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana wildlife officials say the 2014 spring inshore shrimp season will close next week in parts of the state.

The closure takes effect at 6 a.m. July 15 in the Terrebonne and Barataria Basins from the eastern shore of South Pass of the Mississippi River westward to the Atchafalaya River Ship Channel at Eugene Island.

The season also will close in parts of the Lake Pontchartrain basin.

The closures were ordered to protect an increasing number of young, developing shrimp.
