Greater Amberjack in the Gulf of Mexico & South Atlantic, Listening Session
Greater Amberjack is an important recreational and commercial fish species in the Gulf of Mexico and
South Atlantic regions. To address management and stakeholder concerns about the Greater Amberjack
fisheries in both regions, Congress authorized funding of $10 million for a multi-year Greater Amberjack
Research Program to be implemented through a cooperative agreement with the National Sea Grant
Office and the National Marine Fisheries Service.
Draft priorities will soon be available, and listening sessions will be held to get feedback on these
- Texas-hosted Session – Dec. 7 from 6-8 p.m.
- Louisiana-hosted Session – Dec. 8 from 3-5 p.m.
Participants from either state are welcome to attend the session that best fits their schedule.
Additional sessions will be held across the Southeast from Dec. 1-10. To find our more
