Gulf amberjack closes in state and federal waters

The recreational harvest of greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters closes June 1. Greater amberjack will reopen for harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1.

State waters in the Atlantic extend from shore to 3 nautical miles and in the Gulf from shore to 9 nautical miles.

Seasonal harvest closures protect Florida’s valuable greater amberjack populations and help sustain and improve the fishery for the future.
