My name is Joe Dietrich and I was raised in Florida fishing my whole life. As I became of age I joined the military and got to travel the world fishing the entire way. I have seen how many states and countries actually regulate certain species and keep the populace accountable. I recently wrote an Open Source Paper on the Red Snapper and how sector separation is having anglers at each other's throats. During this I came up with 4 things we could do to help boost the Red Snapper population and it may even be helpful for other species. 1. In Alaska they have cards for charter boats that have to be purchased and filled in for their catch. (we could use this for our recreational sector). This would give us better catch data, release data, and unintentional death due to hooks or hungry predators. 2. Slot limits for Red Snapper, based on the science behind their breeding, harvesting them in the 16-22" range would significantly increase the population, as the larger ones produce more spawn. 3. Reintegrate the quotas so there is a single poundage limit for all anglers. (Commercial guys won't like this as much, but there is plenty of other snapper to target). 4. Stop relying on scientists to give you accurate data when anglers can be charged with that as a mandatory requirement to fish. Not only does this give the gulf council and NMFS another source of revenue, it also provides FWC and each states equivalent a source of revenue as well with the fines that would impact anglers if they so choose to break the rules. Thank you for you time.
