4.4.2  State Fishery Management

The purpose of state representation at the council level is to ensure state participation in federal fishery management decision-making and to promote the development of compatible regulations in state and federal waters.  The state governments of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida have the authority to manage their respective state fisheries.  Each of the five Gulf States exercises legislative and regulatory authority over their states’ natural resources through discrete administrative units.  Although each agency is the primary administrative body with respect to the states natural resources, all states cooperate with numerous state and federal regulatory agencies when managing marine resources.  A more detailed description of each states primary regulatory agency for marine resources is provided in Amendment 22 (GMFMC 2004b).
