This report provides estimates of changes in the recreational harvest from SNA 8 that could occur given incremental increases in the recreational minimum legal size limit and incremental reductions of the daily bag limit. These estimates are based on an analysis of boat ramp interview data collected over a 5 year period spanning the 2015–16 to 2019–20 fishing years. These analyses suggest that modest changes to recreational limits would have little effect on recreational harvesting from SNA 8.
