–Lake Pontchartrain, Rigolets Pass, Chef Menteur Pass, that part of Lake Borgne seaward of a line extending one-half mile from the shoreline,

–the open waters of Breton and Chandeleur Sounds as described by the double-rig line

–a portion of the Mississippi Sound

All remaining state inside waters as well as all state outside waters seaward of the Inside/Outside Shrimp Line will remain open to shrimping until further notice.
