    Soon there will be None

    Southeast - NOAA Seeks Comments on a Rebuilding Plan for Red Grouper; Comments Due April 27
    NOAA Fisheries is seeking public comment on Amendment 24 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region. Amendment 24 would establish a rebuilding plan for red grouper in the South Atlantic. The 2008 assessment of South Atlantic red grouper determined the stock to be overfished (population too low) and undergoing overfishing (rate of fish removal too high). The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council and NOAA Fisheries are required by the Magnuson-Stevens Act to implement a rebuilding plan within two years after an overfished stock is identified. NOAA Fisheries notified the Council of the stock status on June 9, 2010. Amendment 24 would implement a plan that would have an 81 percent probability of stock recovery in 10 years. Read more or submit a comment.

    How can the rate of removal be to high, hasn't the Grouper fishery been closed over there for almost a full year now?

    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    Brad... I don't think that's the case regarding an open season.
