Meeting at the Capitol in Baton Rogue, the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board took a strong stand against the current preferred alternative recommended by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council on Amendment 28; red snapper allocation.

The resolution introduced by David Maginnis, vice president of Houma’s Jensen Tuna, declared the Board’s strong support for Amendment 28, Alternative 1; retaining the existing allocation of 51% for commercial fishermen and 49 percent recreational anglers, regardless of the total allowable catch.
