Plaquemines Parish provides endless opportunities for popular recreational activities, such as boating, hunting, fishing, trapping, and birdwatching. Almost everyone likes being on or near the water, and the presence of so many fascinating lifeforms makes our lands especially enjoyable treasures.

Waterfowl hunting in Plaquemines Parish has long been recognized as some of the best in the nation. The location of the Mississippi River Delta at the end of the Mississippi Flyway provides winter habitat for over 1 million ducks and geese and also provides habitat for additional millions of waterfowl on their annual migrations to and from wintering habitat in Central America.
