State Red Snapper Management
Exempted Fishing Permits

Five applications for exempted fishing permits (EFPs) were received by NOAA Fisheries from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Mississippi Department of Marine Resource, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.  If granted, the EFPs would authorize the applicants, with certain conditions, to allow red snapper caught by the private angling component and/or charter vessel/headboat (for-hire) component to be landed within certain time periods determined by the respective states.
