  • Description:
    The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council approved Amendment 28 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region (Amendment 28) in September 2012. Amendment 28 established: (1) a process to determine if a red snapper fishing season will occur each year, which would include specification of the allowable harvest and season lengths for the commercial and recreational sectors; (2) an equation to determine the annual catch limit (ACL) amount for each sector; and (3) management measures if fishing is allowed. The purpose of this analysis is to determine the recreational and commercial ACLs for 2014 and estimate the recreational fishing season length. An estimate of the commercial season length is not provided, because NOAA Fisheries monitors commercial landings in-season and closes the commercial sector when the quota is met or projected to be met.
