Gulf Council Expands Sector Separation

I see that at last week's meeting the Gulf Council chose to expand Amendment 41 (sector separation management) to include triggerfish, red grouper, gag and amberjack. This is not a surprise to those that have been watching the progress of sector separation, which has long been supported by key Federal managers. There are plenty of strong opinions on sector separation, which is certainly a polarizing issue. I believe that it is not a good strategy for managing recreational fisheries in the Gulf and I am sad to see it expanded to include fish beyond red snapper.
