Regulatory Amendment 33 would remove the requirement that if projections indicate the South Atlantic red snapper season (commercial or recreational) would be three days or fewer, the commercial and/or recreational seasons would not open for that fishing year.  If this requirement is removed, red snapper harvest could be open for either recreational or commercial harvest for fewer than four days.
