red snapper season 2013 - May 13th

Today I learned that Red Snapper Season opens on June 1st, 2013.

Today I had dinner with some close friends and they started sharing that Red Snapper Season would open on June 1st, 2013, and that it looked like the rules were going to change for the amount of fish that you were allowed to catch during this season (hopefully expanding the fishing opportunities)

I said, "wow, I definitively learned something new today." Honestly, I don't think I realized there was a red snapper season before tonight, much less that there had been limits on the amount you could catch.

A quick search on the web proved that I knew a lot less about Red Snapper than I thought. Apparently, I've been missing a big discussion about the regulation of fishing and the scientific methods behind the regulation. (See one example here)

I then realized that ignorance can have a quick cure... study about the subject that you're ignorant on. Now, I should be able to at least understand and partially participate in a conversation about Red Snapper. Although, I'm going to have a hard time participating in catching Red Snapper until I buy a Fishing rod .

Lesson Learned: Red Snapper Season opens on June 1st, 2013. (And if you're ignorant about a particular subject... commit to study that subject to improve yourself)
