Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico - Current Regulations Provide Protection for Striped Bass and Red Drum

NOAA Fisheries has determined that the regulatory requirements of Executive Order 13449, "Protection of Striped Bass and Red Drum Fish Populations" are fulfilled. This Executive Order, signed by President Bush in October 2007, authorized the Secretary of Commerce to revise regulations as appropriate, to include the prohibition of sale of striped bass and red drum caught within the U.S. exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Upon review of existing regulations, NOAA Fisheries has determined that current prohibitions on the possession and sale of striped bass and red drum caught in the EEZ achieve the intent of the Executive Order, thus no further action is warranted at this time.
