CCA Florida urges Gulf states to join Florida in the push for a longer federal season.

Orlando, FL – May 30, 2017 – The three-day 2017 Red Snapper season (June 1 – 3) has recreational anglers in Florida voicing concern, and state conservation and advocacy groups are joining the conversation. Florida’s leading organization dedicated to education and advocacy for marine fisheries conservation, Coastal Conservation Association Florida (CCA Florida), is commending the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) for addressing the three-day season with the federal government, in an effort to extend the season for recreational anglers.
