The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) has announced that it will implement a four-day season for fishing red snapper in both federal and state waters off Florida’s coast starting on June 11. This is one of the measures that have been used to prevent overfishing. Allowing only a certain amount of days to fish certain species also allows them to breed and reproduce the rest of the year.
The National Marine Fisheries Service proposed limiting the red snapper season in the Southern Atlantic Ocean, where fishing them has been off limits since 2014, to only two weekends at the end of the year. The FWC will consider approving a proposal at a meeting in Fort Lauderdale on April 26 requiring for-hire operations licensed to catch and harvest certain reef fish to report their intention to do so.
Florida is not the only state where these changes are going into effect. Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas also have several variations of rules and regulations.
