Snapper Season

Hi Pudster,

The snapper season for 2010 has not officially been set yet. What I am about to tell you is a little confusing if you do not keep up with what is going on right now with Red Snapper. The snapper season is tentatively set for June 1 - Aug. 14 2010 with a bag limit of two in federal waters. In December the SSC has said that the snapper population is making and has made a strong comeback so the snapper quota will go up for the 2010 season. How much it will go up has not been set by the GC and NMFS yet. However, due to the recreational sector overfishing the quota by over a million lbs. plus, the season will be set accordingly with the overage in the recreational sector and the increase in the quota. So right now it is hard to say exactly when the season will end but it will open on June 1, 2010
