Red Snapper Mandatory Reporting Requirement

Red Snapper Mandatory Reporting Requirement

The 10 day Federal season for the recreational harvest of red snapper will be open from June 1-10. This year anglers landing fish in Mississippi will be required to comply with a new mandatory reporting requirement administered by the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources (MDMR). The reporting system requires a representative from each vessel to obtain a trip authorization prior to the trip and to then report the catch for the entire vessel after returning. The data will be used to provide better information on recreational catch and effort in Mississippi. There are many ways to interact with the MDMRs new system including a Tales N Scales App for Iphone or Android, a website, and toll free numberĀ  – 844-MSSNAPP (1-844-677-6277)

Get all of the details on the MDMR website.
