Reef Fish Amendment 41 - Red Snapper Management for Federally Permitted Charter Vessels

Our intention for this amendment is to develop a flexible management approach for federally permitted charter vessels that provides flexibility, reduces management uncertainty, improves economic conditions, and increases fishing opportunities for federal charter vessels and their angler passengers. 

There are a wide variety of options being proposed through the Gulf Council and more information can be found here:

Amendment 41 Draft Options Paper

Our preferred direction can best be summarized by the Report from the Ad Hoc Red Snapper Charter For-hire Advisory Panel in Appendix B, listed on page 24 of the above council document.
