5/2/2016 18:11:25Stephanie M Gahertysteph0774@gmail.comI would like the council to please consider taking a look at the gulf of mexico cobia stock.This migratory pelagic species has been off the radar for so many years and is really needing some help in the form of new regulations.The latest sedar reports acknowledge that more current data is needed for an accurate assessment of the stock to be made,yet I see no help headed in the direction of the cobia. PLEASE HELP. Thank youPensacolaPrivate Recreational Angler

6/5/2017 5:26:03Jon Paul BrookerJBrooker@oceanconservancy.orgIn anticipation of this week’s Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (GMFMC) meeting in Naples, Florida, Ocean Conservancy1 would like to provide comments on the following three issues:
Reef Fish Amendment 44 – Update Minimum Stock Size Thresholds (MSST) for Stocks with Existing Status Determination Criteria
Ocean Conservancy continues to urge the Council to select an option at the higher end of the range of alternatives for MSST defaults. Council should rewrite Alternative 4 so that it sets a default for MSST = (1-M) *BMSY (or proxy) or 0.85*BMSY (or proxy), whichever provides a larger buffer between MSST and BMSY (or proxy), and select that alternative as preferred.

6/7/17Dylan Hubbarddhubbard@hubbardsmarina.comTo start, a little background on us and our company. At Hubbard’s Marina, we operate two federally permitted head boats with 50+ passengers and four charter boats all with federal permits, two of those are multi passenger USCG inspected charter vessels. Hubbard’s Marina carries around 60,000 anglers on average per year for near shore and offshore deep sea vertical line fishing. Typically fishing depths of 10-1,000 foot off the central west coast of Florida as a family owned and operated business since 1928.

The following are our recommendations to the council regarding what has been discussed this far at the meeting.(Tab B – 4a) Final action – Amendment 33
Chapter 2.1 – Action 1 – We suggest alternative 1 no action, Minimum stock size threshold (MSST) for the reef fish stocks listed would not be changed. We feel the preferred alternative 3 is a moving target, and would further complicate and already complex system.
