Hello, my name is Captain Dylan Hubbard and my family business has been fishing central west Florida for over 90 years and four generations. We operate 6 federally permitted vessels both charter and head boats, and I am here today representing my family business alone. I am also a graduate of the marine resource education program and I now hold a spot on the reef fish AP.
Gray snapper stock status criteria
Please adopt criteria that keeps us out of rebuilding plan, this is a healthy fishery that has not had a single person at this podium lobbying for more regulation or changes in regulation. I would like to see the 50% minimum stock size threshold and a 26% spawning potential ratio for this stock. This is a paramount fishery for those of us on the west Florida shelf and we do not want to see an unneeded issue arise.

Gray Snapper
I SUPPORT ALL CURRENT PREFERREDS IN AM 51 about mangrove snapper – please move forward with these preferreds to ensure our mangrove snapper fishery is not affected with new regulatory changes. The first ever stock assessment for mangroves caused huge uncertainty and is causing big issues and I am hoping that this uncertainty does not cause changes in our ability to prosecute the gray snapper fishery. A very similar issue has occurred in the hogfish fishery on the west Florida shelf and this year we are looking at a likely ACL closure in a healthy fishery due to ‘uncertainty’ in the assessment. Please do not let this type of issue to occur for gray snapper as well. At the state level, Mangrove snapper min size limit in state waters increase to match fed limit, this will give us an even more stable fishery moving into the future.

Private Recreational Angler
As an avid Reef Fisherman off the Florida Panhandle (32408), I rarely ever catch a Gray Snapper (probably due to abundance of Triggerfish & small ARS). I do however see lots of small 'Juvenile Mangroves' caught/killed in the bays and I don't understand the logic of a 10" minimum for a fish that reaches ~15lbs. Most Reef Fishermen feel a minimum size limit of 14"-16" is needed to protect these nurseries and a bag limit of ~5 fish is perfectly adequate to meet the needs of anyone wanting to eat them (esp. if the minimum size was raised). Thank you for your consideration and PLEASE consider 'Regional Management' for Gray Triggerfish ASAP... (before it' not safe to swim up here)
Sincerely,
JLLmd

LaramieOtherI ma old time pan handle Florida resident currently living in Wyoming. lately have been trying to understand the " sustainablity" moniker applied to fishery management.Just watched to video presentation regarding Grey Snapper, was mangrove snapper to me back in the day, but any way really good presentation and a good inside view of the complexities of fishery management. One part art one part science.Please keep up the good work, fight the good fight.
