TPWD Seeks Public Input on How Spotted Seatrout Should be Managed

CORPUS CHRISTI — Due to continued public interest in overall spotted seatrout population health, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Coastal Fisheries Division staff will host a series of coastwide scoping meetings in January to obtain public input on potential conservation measures for spotted seatrout as part of the annual statewide proclamation process.   Coastal Fisheries staff will consider input on how spotted seatrout are currently managed in Texas.

To provide anglers with more information about spotted seatrout management in Texas, a frequently asked questions page has been set up on the TPWD website at www.tpwd.state.tx.us.  Also on the website is an online comments page that has been set up to receive input as well.

The public is invited to attend and provide comments at any of the following meetings: All meetings begin at 7 p.m.

If you are unable to attend one of these meeting and would like to provide comments please contact your local TPWD Coastal Fisheries office or Fisheries Outreach Specialist, Art Morris, Corpus Christi Field Station, phone 361-825-3356, email: art.morris@tpwd.texas.gov.
