Workshops to Discuss Possible Regional Management of Recreational Red Snapper

The Gulf Council has scheduled scoping workshops around the Gulf of Mexico to get public input on a proposed amendment that examines regional management of recreational red snapper. Scoping workshops are the first and best opportunity for you to make suggestions or raise issues and concerns before the Council begins developing an amendment.

Regional management of recreational red snapper would enable areas of the Gulf to propose management measures tailored to specific regions. This round of scoping workshops will address regional management issues, including locally optimal management measures, regional boundaries, allocation, and other components for the design of regional management proposals.

Seven scoping workshops are scheduled around the Gulf. All workshops begin at 6pm and conclude at the end of public comment, but no later than 9pm. The workshop schedule is as follows:
