Framework Action to Modify Greater Amberjack Management Measures in the Gulf of Mexico

The proposed rule would set the greater amberjack allowable stock harvest at 1,720,000 pounds whole weight (lbs ww) for 2015 and beyond,  increase the minimum recreational size limit from 30 inches fork length (inches) to 34 inches,  and reduce the commercial trip limit from 2,000 pounds lbs ww  to 1,500 lbs gutted weight.
