Gulf of Mexico Fishing Regulations Smart Phone App

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (GMFMC) has released a fishing regulations iPhone/iPad App which is available for download.

The free App provides access to updated commercial and recreational federal fishing regulations for species managed by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council via an iPhone or iPad.

The gulf fishing App also provides information on fish identification, measurement guidelines, sanctuaries and closures, and important telephone numbers.

Once downloaded, no internet connection is needed to access the App while out fishing. The Council hopes to develop a similar App compatible with other smart phones.

To download the new App, visit the App store from your iPhone or iPad, search for “Gulf Council,” and click on the Council logo.
