- Management of snapper in most of the world is poor, and has resulted in overfishing of many populations
- Gulf of Mexico red snapper has been caught under an innovative catch share management plan since 2007. Populations have increased significantly, while fishermen have also reduced discards by 50%. As a direct result, Gulf commercial red snapper fishermen have seen a 60% increase in their quotas since the program began.
