Feds up the ante in red snapper clash

The St. Pete Times breaking news blog reports on the federal governments reaction to the failure by Texas and Florida to adopt tighter controls on red snapper fishing in state waters. The feds have shortened the red snapper season in federal waters by two months. The article notes that scientists have determined that the red snapper population is under too much pressure. The federal government had sought Texas and Florida's cooperation in adopting limitations to the taking of red snappers from state waters.
