over fishing of red snapper have gone to a total of 11.6 million pounds in 2017. Then laws are now placed so a recovery of the population restricting the amount a fisherman can catch.The time is estimated to take 6 years to have a balance in the population.
Red snapper can live up to 50 years. But there have been a growth in young making the population uneven. Many fish are the age of 10 years over taking the older generations.
At 1950 the spawning potential was at its highest at 42%. A ladder is used to be a rebuilding target for the population of red snapper. But as seen in the graph it is not working because they are at a low of 18 or 19%.
The age of the Red Snapper can go up to 50 years. But older Red Snapper are becoming more rare to find. So they want to have more rules to make sure they grow bigger in size and age.
Red snapper is a very popular dish in the United States. Due to its high popularity Red Snapper farming have developed. Lowering the amounts of open water catching per year around the world
Red snapper is a good calorie and a source of protein that is full selenium, vitamin A, potassium also omega-3 fatty acids. A diet that regularly incorporates these nutrients may significantly. Maybe that's why the demand for them is so high.
Red snapper are seasonal fish because their population reaches its peak during July and going through September. Often following food to areas around the gulf. Making them seasonal breeders as well.
In Orlando fisherman have a 3 day pass to legally catch Red Snapper. Both commercial and recreational fishing is legal for the Orlando area. But after the 3 days the strict law of catching now Red Snapper is back on.
Fish farming is a great way to lower the amount of open sea farming. But they should make fish farming to wear the fish are treated better. And also fed better so it is safer for our consumption.
We could only catch younger fish so it evens out the age difference in the populations. Then we could reduce the amounts that we catch lowering the amount caught per year. And hopefully making the population stronger.
In conclusion we need to build the population. Or we need to even out the age between the Red Snapper so the population is healthy again. Also I would suggest that we continue fish farms but make sure its a healthy way so the nutrients is not lost.
