Grouper and tilefish IFQ legal

Industry Database

A magistrate judge in Florida has determined that the grouper and tilefish IFQ in the Gulf of Mexico conforms to all federal laws and the US Constitution.

The Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Shareholders Alliance and EDF intervened in the case and released the following statement.

“The Alliance and EDF are pleased with the report and recommendations made by the magistrate judge upholding the validity of Amendment 29. We agree that the Council and NOAA properly implemented the program, and experience has shown that it is working the way it was intended. The IFQ has proven to be tremendously valuable to improving the conservation and management of the fishery. We hope that this ruling marks the end of this case. But if not, we will continue to defend the IFQ.”
