The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council has scheduled a series of public hearings around the Gulf of Mexico beginning Monday, March 10, 2014.

The meetings will continue through March 24. The purpose of the meetings is to solicit public comment on Amendment 28 – Red Snapper Reallocation.

The amendment, which has been moved forward by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, would take nearly half a million pounds of popular red snapper off the consumer market in 2015 alone and give it to the recreational sector.

These public hearings are an opportunity to let the Council know that this reallocation is false promise to Gulf anglers and will only hurt Gulf fishing businesses.

You can keep track of the hearings and their locations via our Facebook page.
