This is a reminder about the commercial and recreational fishing seasons in South Atlantic federal waters for red snapper. Unlike the previous two weekends, the recreational fishing season for the upcoming weekend (beginning July 25, 2014) will be open on Friday and Saturday only and will not be open on Sunday. For the upcoming weekend, the recreational fishing season for red snapper in South Atlantic waters will open on Friday, July 25 (at 12:01 a.m.) and close on Sunday, July 27 (at 12:01 a.m.). During the open recreational season, the bag limit is one fish per person per day and there is no minimum size limit for red snapper.
 
The commercial red snapper season opened at 12:01 a.m. on July 14, 2014. The commercial season will end when the annual catch limit is projected to be met. Another Federal Register notice and Fishery Bulletin will be published if and when the commercial annual catch limit for red snapper is projected to be met. During the open commercial season, the daily trip limit is 75 pounds gutted weight and there is no minimum size limit for red snapper. If severe weather conditions exist, NOAA Fisheries will announce via NOAA Weather Radio and a Fishery Bulletin any change in the red snapper fishing seasons.
 
For additional information regarding the South Atlantic red snapper annual catch limits and recreational season length projection report, please visit:

This bulletin provides only a summary of the existing regulations. Full regulations can be found in the Federal Register.
