Default Red Snapper mortality in warm water

Report from University of Florida.

The 40-day 2012 recreational red snapper season in the Gulf of Mexico begins June 1 and ends July 10. With a bag limit of two snapper per angler per day, you will want to make the most of your fishing trip.

Several recent studies indicate the mortality of red snapper increases dramatically if returned to the Gulf when water temperatures are warmer. Complying with size limits or simply trying to catch a bigger fish may have unintended consequences when water temperatures approach the mid 80s.
