South Atlantic Red Snapper Season Extended

NOAA Fisheries and the South Atlantic Council are extending the red snapper season in the South Atlantic to include an additional three-day weekend, December 8-10. The bag limit has been set at one fish per person with no size limit.

The SAFMC and NOAA are asking that anglers take special care of species caught but not harvested, and descending devices are recommended as a great way to return fish to the bottom when experiencing barotrauma. At CCA Florida, we are committed to science and ensuring there are fish for future generations, and ask all anglers to use these devices to help improve survival rates. SAFMC has also requested that anglers use this opportunity to test out a new voluntary reporting website called myfishcount.com. This website gives anglers a chance to report their catches and interactions on the water.
