Default Buoys missing off Independence Island Reef

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is requesting leads from the public regarding missing mooring buoys from Independence Island Reef.

Six buoys went missing in late June from the popular fishing spot about three miles northeast of Grand Isle, according to a press release from LDWF.
Anyone with tips can call the Operation Game Thief toll-free hotline at 1-800-442-2511, or text the tip to LDWF at 847411.
LDWF tip apps for iPhone and Android platforms are now available from iTunes and Google Play stores free of charge.
Removing the buoys brings a $250- to-$500 fine and 90 days in jail, the release states.
The buoys, which were part of a 2011 restoration project completed with LDWF and Coastal Conservation Association Louisiana, are provided to allow anglers an identifiable marker of the fishing spot.
Almost 8,000 tons of limestone were dropped from barges onto four acres where Independence Island was located in 2011. At the time, that project was believed to be the largest inshore limestone artificial reef project ever completed, the release states.
