Dividing red snapper catches

Dividing the red snapper catch between commercial fisherman and those who fish for fun.

Right now, commercial operations get 51 percent of the allowed catch each season, recreational fishermen, 49 percent.

The federal "Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council" is considering whether that allotment should change.

They're holding public meetings next month to get input.
The one's in our area are March 10th at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Orange Beach.

March 11th, Renaissance Riverview, Mobile.
And March 12th at the Holiday Inn Select, Panama City both starting at 6 pm.
