Shrimp Season Starts Thursday

The 2002 Mississippi shrimp season opens Thursday at 6 a.m.

The Department of Marine Resources set the June 6th opening date on Monday after experts determined that shrimp in the Mississippi Sound are large enough to be harvested.

Last year, an estimated 900 boats caught shrimp on the opening day of the season.
