The implications for fisheries management are huge, albeit largely unknown and unpredictable. And of course it’s frustration over fisheries management and alleged mismanagement by the feds that account for this legislation. And to put a finer point on it, it’s all about red snapper, with Gulf states (not) enjoying the shortest federal seasons on record, measured in days vs. weeks or months. Yet virtually to a person, anyone who spends time fishing the Gulf will say snapper are simply everywhere in unheard-of numbers. It’s a recipe for aggravation.
