Seafood Counter Shrimp

By Julie Lively

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will host a series of meetings to gather public comments on Shrimp Amendment 17B. This Amendment considers setting shrimp harvest benchmarks, setting a target number of Federal Gulf of Mexico Shrimp permits, creating a permit pool, and allowing transit through federal waters for non-permitted shrimp vessels. Because the Council may take final action as early as April 2017, few opportunities remain for public input.
