NMFS Red Snapper Season Announced
St Petersburg Fla (MSNBC) - NMFS Southern Regional Director Roy Craptree announced today there will definitely be a Gulf Of Mexico fall red snapper season.
Seen here in the picture below, Craptree held the news conference outside the NMFS offices, with fellow fisheries bureaucrats standing with him and their Pew Environment Group and EDF Environmental Defense Fund overlords standing behind them to make sure they stuck to the script.
'Dr' Craptree proclaimed, 'After a painstaking five minute review of the paid-for science graciously provided by our comrades at Pew and EDF, your hardworking NMFS bureaucrats met at the local Hooters for a lengthy roundtable discussion.
It has been determined that there will be a season, one hour in length. It began yesterday at noon and ended at 1pm. Sadly, the best science available from Pew tells us the recreational fishers went over their allotment by 300 million pounds.
Accordingly, NMFS will spend its entire FY2014 budget building a time machine so we can go back in time and retroactively penalize these greedy recreational fishers and help conserve our endangered red snapper for future generations.
No further questions!' /end transmission
