FWC to consider changes to Red Snapper fishing regulations

The St. Pete Times says that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is planning a February public hearing in Panama City to consider changes to the length of the season and regulations governing the fishing of red snapper. According to the article, "[t]he species is considered to be undergoing overfishing in the gulf, and federal laws require that measures be taken to end it." The current season, which already saw some interim changes in the number of fish that could be taken on a daily basis, ends on Thursday.
