Water from Menge Avenue to the AL state line closed

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Most of Mississippi's offshore waters are closed to fishing. The closed area was expanded once again on Wednesday. Now, only the area west of Menge Avenue to the Louisiana line remains open.

The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources also strongly urges all crab fishermen with crab traps in the closed waters of the Mississippi Sound to temporarily remove their traps. The advisory is a result of concerns about interference with oil abatement activities being conducted in Mississippi waters.
