Amendment 29 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region

  

If approved, this amendment would update the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council’s (Council) acceptable biological catch (ABC) control rule to incorporate methodology for determining the ABC of unassessed species, adjust ABCs for fourteen unassessed snapper-grouper species, adjust annual catch limits (ACLs) and recreational annual catch targets (ACTs) for three species complexes and four snapper-grouper species based on revised ABCs.  The amendment would also modify and implement gray triggerfish minimum size limits and establish a commercial split season and commercial trip limits for gray triggerfish.
