The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council would like to gain a better understanding of gag grouper in the Gulf of Mexico. It is seeking information from anglers and divers about what they have observed, including any “strange things” that scientists and managers may need to know. Scientists are currently working on a stock assessment of gag, and your recent observations can help them and fishery managers better understand the Gulf of Mexico gag stock.

Please visit the Council's “Something's Fishy with Gag” tool before Jan. 10, 2021, to report anything you've noticed about gag in the Gulf of Mexico.
