Re-opening of Greater Amberjack Fishing Season in the Gulf of Mexico

The NOAA is reminding fishermen that the season for greater amberjack is re-opening of August 1st, 2015 at 12:01am local time. The daily bag limit is currently one fish per person, and the size limit is 30 inches fork length. However, the NOAA is currently reviewing a possible change to this rule by making the size limit 34 inches fork length. Updates on whether or not this change will be approved are coming soon.

It is estimated that the recreational quota could be met by the end of September, and if this is the case, then the NOAA will announce the closure of the fishing season.
