Sea Grant hosting fishing regulations workshop

Special to the PRESS

The Texas Sea Grant College Program will co-host a public workshop on offshore recreational fishing regulations at various locations along the Texas coast during the first week in September.

The workshops, presented free of charge in partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Service, are intended to clarify for the public existing recreational fishing regulations that apply to state and federal waters off the Texas coast. These regulations include license and permit requirements, seasons, equipment and size limits.

The workshops will focus on current regulations only and will not include public discussion on proposed or pending regulations. For more information, contact TPWD Game Warden Les Casterline at (361) 289-5566.
