Snapper limits reduced, cormorant killings challenged
from Florida Today
The daily trip limit for the commercial harvest of vermilion snapper in the South Atlantic was reduced 500 pounds with a rule change that went into effect recently. NOAA Fisheries determined that the 75 percent of the July-December 2014 quota has been landed. Regulatory Amendment 18 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region reduced the vermilion snapper commercial trip limit from 1,500 pounds gutted weight to 1,000 pounds.
