Commercial Yellowtail Snapper closure reversed

(South Atlantic)

September 10, 2112

The Commercial Sector for Yellowtail Snapper
in the South Atlantic Will Not Close on September 11, 2012

The commercial sector for yellowtail snapper will not close on September 11, 2012. Updated landings data indicate the commercial annual catch limit for yellowtail snapper has not been reached. Therefore, the previously scheduled commercial closure has been canceled. The commercial sector of the snapper-grouper fishery may continue harvesting yellowtail snapper until the annual catch limit has been met.

Another Federal Register notice and Fishery Bulletin will be published if and when the commercial annual catch limit for yellowtail snapper is projected to be met.
