Tuesday, October 27th is the last chance for recreational fishermen in Florida to attend the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council public hearing to speak out on red snapper. If you are unable to attend that meeting, you can participate in the webinar on Wednesday October 28th. Click here to register! There is also one meeting left in Baton Rouge on November 2nd for recreational fishermen in the Florida Panhandle that can’t make it to St. Petersburg.
Across the Gulf states, Reef Fish Amendment 39 has been the topic of discussion for recreational fishermen. Passage would give the Gulf states increased flexibility in managing red snapper seasons and bag limits. Increased state flexibility means increased fishing opportunities.
Your voice is important and must be heard.
Amendment 39 is a sensible path forward but the opposition is well organized and well-funded. They will be out in force and want to stop you from getting your fair share of red snapper. That’s why it’s so important to show our strength by filling the room.
Download talking points to present to the Council when you speak.
Attend the public hearing in St. Petersburg, take a friend, and let your voice be heard! If you can’t make it in person, join the webinar and have your opinion counted.
