NOAA Fisheries Announces Closure Dates for the Commercial Harvest of the Deepwater Complex, the Porgy Complex, Gray Triggerfish, and Yellowtail Snapper in the South Atlantic

The commercial harvest of the deepwater complex and the porgy complex will close, effective 12:01 a.m. (local time) September 8, 2012, through 12:01 a.m. January 1, 2013. The commercial harvest of gray triggerfish and yellowtail snapper will close, effective 12:01 a.m. (local time) September 11, 2012, through 12:01 a.m. January 1, 2013. Updated landings data indicate that commercial harvest of these species and species complexes will likely meet the respective annual catch limits established by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council-approved Snapper-Grouper Fishery Management Plan by these dates. As a result, commercial harvest will be closed in federal waters of the South Atlantic.

See the NOAA Fisheries Southeast Fishery Bulletinfor details, including a list of species within the deepwater complex and porgy complex, and additional contact information.
