Framework Action to Set the 2013 Red Snapper Commercial and Recreational Quotas and Modify the Recreational Bag Limit

The proposed action would increase the 2013 red snapper quota from 8.08 to 8.46 million pounds (mp) whole weight. This is a 5 % increase from the 2012 quota.  The commercial and recreational sector quotas, based on the current 51%: 49% allocation, would be 4.315 mp for commercial and 4.145 mp for recreational.
