Snapper Grouper Regulatory Amendment 29

Snapper Grouper Regulatory Amendment 29

At their March 2018 meeting, the Council removed actions pertaining to best fishing practices and powerhead regulations from Snapper Grouper Plan Amendment 46 and requested that staff begin development of a framework amendment.  The Council was concerned that other actions in Amendment 46 (recreational permitting and reporting) would take significant time to be developed and did not want to delay action on other issues.

The Council will review options at their June 2018 meeting.
