Yellowtail Snapper Emergency Rule Request
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 @ 10:34:24 EDT

Yellowtail Snapper Emergency Rule Request
An anticipated closure of the commercial yellowtail snapper fishery was delayed after reported landings were updated shortly before the beginning of last week’s Council meeting. An updated stock assessment, recently completed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, shows the stock is healthy and not undergoing overfishing or overfished. The Council approved an Emergency Rule request to increase the ACL for yellowtail snapper, a staple for the Florida Keys. Because the stock is managed jointly with the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, the new stock assessment will be reviewed by the Scientific and Statistical Committees from both Councils on October 10, 2012 and managers are hopeful that an increase in the ACL will be allowed this year.
