Title: Vision Blueprint Commercial Regulatory Amendment 27 to the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region 
Abstract: During a series of stakeholder meetings in 2014, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) gathered input from commercial fishermen throughout the region. Based on the input, the Council developed the 2016-2020 Vision Blueprint for the commercial sector of the Snapper-Grouper Fishery Management Plan (Vision Blueprint). The Vision Blueprint identifies the goals, objectives, strategies, and actions that support the vision for the snapper-grouper fishery. This rulemaking action would implement Regulatory Amendment 27, which addresses specific action items in the Vision Blueprint for the commercial sector of the Snapper-Grouper FMP such as seasonal management, trip limits and minimum size limits, and intends to allow more equitable access, minimize discards, and achieve optimum yield.
