Snapper Grouper Aggregates - freefish7 - 02-20-2018

The only real problem I see with the current aggregates is with the jack complex not being managed with any kind of trip limit that would avoid extend closures and excessive discards. A 500 pound trip limit for the first 75% of each annual quota stepping down to a 100 pound bycatch allowance for the final 25% would solve this problem. Split seasons wouldn't hurt either.
