Default Gulf Council Announces Rule Change For Red Snapper!

Just in - the Gulf Council has decided to change the fisheries laws so that Black Americans are going to be allowed to fish for red snapper from 12:01 AM June 1, 2015 to 11:59PM June 10, 2015 (10 days).

White Americans will be allowed to fish from 12:01 AM June 1, 2015 to 11:59 PM July 14, 2015 (44 days).

This is what AM 40 does - provide SEPARATE BUT EQUAL access to our fisheries?

What difference does it make what arbitrary parameters contrived by a bureaucrat are being used to SEGREGATE then DISCRIMINATE against American citizens? There is no difference. We are ALL Americans and we ALL have the same rights to accessing OUR Public Trust Resources.

Our federal government is instituting laws from our past it seems - laws that have proven to be Unconstitutional and are in fact illegal.

If you go out and find your own "Red Snappers" you are allowed only 10 days but if you are a "John" on a for hire boat he can find "Red Snappers' for you for 44 days.

Isn't even worse than that? I think some head boats are still fishing 365 days in federal waters under the exempted fishing plan?

Gator - the Headboat EFP is a trailer that provides a glimpse of what Sector Separation will bring. Last year, the headboats in the EFP fished for about 9 months while everyone else fished for 9 days.

9 days for the private recs, 9 months for the for-hire.

Illegal prohibition of access to our Public Trust Resources for some, but not for others.

Apparently the concept that all Americans are equal no longer applies to our federal fisheries laws.

Was in Orange Beach the other weekend, got into a conversation with a head boat captain, he did say he had used up his snapper tags for the year. But his biggest complaint was the way the tags were distributed, he wasn't one of the few got the lion share of tags. My thoughts are this is what is going to happen with SOS sooner or later

Doncha know small businesses are the job-creators in this country & it's the Federal government's Constitutional responsibility to create jobs?

What's wrong with you? Why do you hate small businesses and the Constitution?

How many more small businesses dollars are generated from boat manufacturers, rod builders, reel builders, trailer manufacturers, marinas, boat detailers, boat storage operations, marine electronic repair and installation shops, out board repair shops, fiberglass repair shops, reel repair shops, bait and tackle shops, lure manufacturers, aluminum tower/t top builders, bait suppliers, outboard part retailers, ice houses, etc do you think private recreational anglers from TX to FL generate over the 1100 federally permitted charter boats gulf wide...

Andy - I understand that your post was most probably tongue-in-cheek.

If you want to do an analysis of the effects of the federal fisheries managers' actions on job creation (or lack thereof) around the Gulf, I think it would be a VERY enlightening endeavor. Personally, I believe the un-needed and un-wanted draconian reductions in our federal seasons and bag limits since 2007 have caused more damage to our coastal economies (and jobs) than Katrina and the oil spill combined.

This video explains a lot about what is happening. About 10 minutes into the video, a representative from Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Tourism shows that Alabama communities enjoyed $630 million in 2006 from the Alabama reefs. That revenue declined by $151 million in 2009, and there is no telling how many hundreds of millions (probably BILLIONS) of dollars have been needlessly lost not only in Alabama but Gulf-wide since the 2006 hijack.

The video also shows that 1,600 jobs were lost in Alabama alone in the 3 year time frame from 2006 to 2009.

That it was.

Wasn't there someone on here last year from UWF doing an economic study of rec fishing?
