Last day of federal red snapper season for charter vessels is Tuesday


BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — State wildlife and fisheries officials are reminding charter vessels that Tuesday is the last day of the federal red snapper season.

NOAA Fisheries made the decision to split the recreational red snapper quota into two components — private anglers and charter vessels and headboats (for-hire). Private anglers had a 10-day federal season that closed June 10, while charter vessels/headboats have a 45-day season closing at the end of the day July 14.
