Review of red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) data in Texas
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this report is to identify and review currently available Texas data on red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) from federal, state, and other sources. These data are compared to information necessary for stock assessment according to NMFS methodology, and indicate that some of the necessary data are at this time unavailable for Texas. It is hoped that this information will be used to develop scientific research in support of the Texas red snapper stock assessment, working towards the goal of more effective and fair management of the red snapper fishery in Texas waters.
