Gray Triggerfish Size Limit to Increase in Florida's Atlantic Waters July 9

09 Jul 2015 6:11 PM | Scott Sampson (Administrator)
At its April 15 meeting in Tallahassee, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved increasing the minimum size limit of gray triggerfish in Atlantic state waters from 12 inches fork length to 14 inches fork length.



This change makes Atlantic state water regulations consistent with new federal regulations. The change also makes the minimum size limit for gray triggerfish in Atlantic state waters (from shore to 3 nautical miles) the same as it is in Gulf state waters (from shore to 9 nautical miles). This minimum size limit applies to both recreational and commercial harvest.
