A phishing scam is targeting the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council and it’s contacts, an email from the council states.

If you have received an email asking for money of behalf of the Council, it is fraudulent and should be deleted immediately.

“The Gulf Council is not asking for donations,” the email states. “We are working to trace the origins of this fraudulent email. Thank you for understanding.”
