Summary

This action would retain the 9 percent buffer between the annual catch target (ACT) and annual catch limit (ACL) for the red snapper for-hire component, which was implemented in 2019. The ACT is used to set the season length. This action will allow the federal for-hire component to continue to harvest more of the ACL while constraining landings to the component and total recreational ACL.
