Recreational Red Snapper Season Closes July 24

Red Snapper

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council reminds recreational anglers that the Gulf of Mexico red snapper recreational season closes 12:01 a.m. local time July 24, 2010. The season will reopen Jun 1, 2011. However, because of the Deepwater Horizon/BP Oil Spill and the resulting fishing area closure, a reduction in effort may have prevented the recreational quota from being filled. The Gulf Council has requested that, should NOAA Fisheries determine the quota has not been filled, that it conduct rulemaking to reopen recreational red snapper fishing later this year to allow the harvest of the remaining quota.

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council is one of eight regional fishery management councils established by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976. The Council prepares fishery management plans designed to manage fishery resources in the federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
