Let NEW Members Vote
“I demand that any final actions be moved to the Biloxi meeting in October because the new council members will not be able to vote at the august meeting and they need to have their say, that is why they were appointed to the council so please let them weigh in!”

Charter/Headboat For-Hire
Hello, my name is Captain Dylan Hubbard and my family business has been fishing central west coast of Florida for nearly 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 and my family’s business history alone. It’s not easy loosing time away from work, my family, and my dog to follow this council around the gulf but my family’s long history fishing the Gulf is worth protecting to me and makes me more driven to get through these meetings and stand up here today. I have recently completed part of the MREP program this past fall and will be attending the science portion of the program this coming week. If you haven’t had a chance to join the program, I would strongly encourage you to do so and I hope it continues to grow and flourish.

Carry Over of Unused Harvest
We feel this would be very important to all sectors and would increase access to the all fisheries, so this Amendment should be a top priority for this council at every future meeting, why leave something that could be so positive and helpful on the table. In this current draft, I feel a fixed framework approach would be the best course with a predetermined set of quota carry over for each species included in this management approach that way it could be executed quickly and easily once landings are finalized and there’d be no question of what we could be carried over. I know myself and all the other charter boat and head boat operators and owners in this room would be overjoyed to be given back the unused red snapper quota we have been underfishing the past three years. We could fill as much quota as you will give, BUT WE NEED THE DAYS TO DO IT and this carry over provision could do just that.
While on the subject of underfishing, the private rec buffer for red snapper was just lowered to 10% in my state, would love to see the feds lower the buffer for the for-hire sub sector of the rec sector and give more days in the season to allow us to fill this quota.

Limited carryover ACL
After looking at the numbers I think that having a provision to carry over some portion of some uncaught ACLs is a good move in limited scenarios such as premature closures. However, you certainly do not want to increase the catch on every species that falls short of its ACL. Many of the species listed in the document that show a large uncaught percentage are that way because there is a problem with the fishery. The last thing a battered stock needs is higher harvest the next year. For example(s) red grouper; 60% went uncaught because there are very few left out there (and the ACL is way too high) this is not the time to rollover more allowable catch the following year. Cobia came in 42% under ACL due to abundance problems. Certainly not the time to add more ACL the following year. So yes, I support giving managers the flexibility to make up for unforeseen or unnecessary closures or penalties, provided that any carryover plan does not put more pressure on species with declining catches.

We operate 6 federally permitted vessels both charter and head boats, and I represent the Florida Guides association as their offshore director.
Carry Over of Unused Harvest
We feel this would be very important to all sectors and would increase access to the all fisheries included in this plan. However, it would need to happen quickly to be ready for the following year and nearly automated, so a fixed framework approach would be the best course with a predetermined set of quota carry over for each species included in this management approach.

On the Carry over provision, please continue pushing this forward and working on it at every meeting. I know myself and all the other charter boat and head boat operators and owners in this room would be overjoyed to be given back the unused red snapper quota we have been underfishing the past three years. We could fill as much quota as you will give, BUT WE NEED THE DAYS TO DO IT and this carry over provision could do just that. Thank you for making some progress on it at this meeting, the discussions were very healthy, but this needs to continue at the august meeting and every subsequent meeting until we reach final action and implementation

Carry over provision was not discussed at this meeting, PLEASE discuss it at the next October meeting. Why leave something that could be so positive and helpful on the table? We need the ability to fish our quota, there’s been talk of the for-hire fleets ability to land our quota. We don’t have an over allocation of quota issue, we have an under allocation of days issue. Give us the days and we will show you the fish.
