Magistrate Judge Finds Gulf of Mexico Grouper and Tilefish IFQ Legal

EDF is pleased with the report and recommendations made by a magistrate judge that upholds 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.
