Alabama’s conditions post-Isaac improved rapidly, but southeastern Louisiana was not so lucky.
But the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board already had strategies ready to deal with storms like Isaac. These are ensuring public confidence and forming strategic partnerships with organizations such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Louisiana Restaurant Association.
“Through common understanding and shared vigilance, we can speak and act as one for the benefit of many,” said Ewell Smith, executive director the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board.
“That way, our constituents know we’re working together to help them survive the crisis. And, just as important, consumers know everything that’s being done to ensure Louisiana seafood is available and safe.”
