As the southernmost parish in Louisiana, Plaquemines Parish holds a universe of ecological wonders. Hunters and fishermen will find an almost-unlimited range of wildlife and fish there. For the time being, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has closed commercial and recreational fishing south of Port Sulphur due to the discovery of the tilapia in the waterways.
