TP&W seeking input on red snapper season

TP&W seeking input on red snapper season

Recently, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) announced a three-day 2017 Red Snapper season. The decision to go with Framework 2, allowing a three-day weekend of fishing through Labor Day, was announced June 15.

Louisiana recreational red snapper anglers expecting a 27-day federal season extension this summer are in for a pleasant surprise: Eleventh-hour negotiations on Tuesday between the five Gulf states and the U.S. Department of Commerce resulted in a Friday/Saturday/Sunday 39-day season starting this Friday, June 16, and ending on Labor Day - Monday, Sept. 4. Historically, courts have made the recreational sector "pay back" in future years any overages that occurred during a fishing season.

This is the longest Gulf federal red snapper season since 2013. It said Louisiana and MS, which keep close tabs on anglers' catches, have agreed to use their figures to decide whether to hold a fall season. By 2008, the season had dropped to around 60 days a year and anglers were limited to keeping two fish.

"And Texas is going to have a fall season regardless".

The practice of limiting the number of days to fish in federal waters began in the late '90s under the auspices of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The fish is now making a robust return.

"Many thanks are due to the president, Secretary (of Commerce Wilbur) Ross, Congressman Bradley Byrne, Alabama's congressional delegation and the local Gulf Coast government entities for their fight to increase the length of the red snapper season", Ivey said.

The choice of Framework 2 was a bit of surprise.

The new season will now include every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from June 16 to September 3, as well as July 3, 4 and Labor Day.

Scalise joined Byrne on boating trip through the Gulf of Mexico to catch red snapper.

"I think that's great, I think that's great for our economy, there are enough snapper out there for us in South Alabama to extend that season we're all very excited about it, it's great for families it's great for fun, it's great for our economy, it's great for tourism", said a man who identified himself as Doctor O. While the proposal is getting positive marks overall, some who make their living fishing say it only helps a small group of fisherman rather than the whole industry.
