FWC Seeks Input on Gag Grouper Season in Gulf Region

Post By: culinarypunk      Posted: 3/10/2017 8:51:41 AM     Points: 81376    

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting three public workshops to gather public input on the recreational gag grouper season in state waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties.

Staff have received stakeholder requests for a longer season in this area, which is currently open yearly from April 1 through June 30. Gulf state waters outside of that area and all Gulf federal waters are open June 1 through Dec. 31. Monroe County is also not included because it follows the Atlantic state season.

Meeting locations and dates are as follows (all are from 6-8 p.m. EDT):
Carrabelle March 13 City Hall, 1001 Gray Ave.
Perry March 15 City Council Chambers, 224 S. Jefferson St.
Tallahassee March 16 LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library, 200 W. Park Ave.

Make sure your voice is heard on this important topic by attending a public workshop. Written comments on this and other topics can also be submitted at
