Red snapper season has been cut short this year by federal regulation. The season was 44 days last year and only 11 days this year.

Tuesday night, the M.D.M.R. is holding a meeting to get feedback from recreational fishermen. Click on the video at left to watch our live interview with Melissa Scallan, the P.I.O. for the M.D.M.R.
