The AP is scheduled to review and discuss draft Reef Fish Amendment 41, which examines developing management program for the harvest of red snapper by federally permitted charter vessels to provide flexibility, reduce management uncertainty, improve economic conditions, and increase fishing opportunities for federal charter vessels and their angler passengers. 

The AP will also develop recommendations to the Council regarding the design of a red snapper management program for charter vessels.
