The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council has scheduled a series of Recreational Angler Participation sessions – or RAP sessions – to hear about the issues Gulf of Mexico recreational anglers have regarding current federal fisheries management, and to explore potential solutions to those issues.

Who should attend? Anyone with concerns about recreational fisheries regulations who would like to play a role in shaping the future of recreational fisheries management.

 

The meetings will take place throughout the Gulf coast in January, 2014. A webinar is scheduled for those who may be unable to attend a RAP session in person. The session schedule is as follows:
